For academics, graduate students, researchers, practitioners, commissioners, and end users, Shaw (social work, U. of York, UK) et al. offer a handbook that covers social work research around the world, with a focus on its nature and role, practice and purpose, quality, and aims. The 29 chapters by social work researchers from Europe, the US, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand integrate theory, practice, and research and address other aspects like different social work research contexts, including government, ethics, countries, and intellectual contexts; research methods and practice in relation to its purpose, context, and values; and domains like nation, community, health, disability, mental health, aging, criminal justice, and children, young people, and families. They emphasize newer developments and neglected methodologies over familiar ones like evidence-based practice and interview methods. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
