Summary
  • "In One Hundred Years of Social Work, the authors provide a nuanced narrative informed by a combination of feminist theory, critical theory, and political economy. They have mined all the secondary literature and done extensive archival work as well as many interviews with living key players. This is a book of very sound scholarship... Because the book is thoroughly documented, it will serve for many years to come as the standard book in the social work field to trace and analyze the history of social workers in the twentieth century. But the writing is jargon-free and the book should serve equally well for anyone studying the evolution of social policy in Canada or the evolution of professions in the country."--- Alvin Finkel, author of Social Policy and Practice in Canada: A History (WLU Press, 2006) --
  • "This book is essential reading for anyone interested in Canadian social policy. Through meticulous research the authors provide the first comprehensive history of social work professionalization in Canada. In telling this story they shed critical light on the ambiguous role the profession has played during both the formation and unravelling of Canada's welfare state. Centred principally on the activities of the Canadian Association of Social Workers this well-written history skilfully explores the tension between social activism and professional recognition within an occupation located at the crossroads of social justice."--James Struthers, Canadian Studies Department, Trent University --
  • One Hundred Years of Social Work chronicles the early history of the secularization and professionalization of social work and examines social workers' roles during both world wars, the Depression, and in the era of postwar reconstruction. It includes sections on civil defence, the Cold War, unionization, social work education, regulation of the profession, and other key developments in the twentieth century. --
  • Drawing on extensive archival research as well as personal interviews and secondary literature, the authors provide strong academic evidence of a profession that has endured many important changes and continues to advocate for a just society and a responsive social welfare state. --Book Jacket
