Summary
  • "Building on the foundations of Neil Thompson's Anti-Discriminatory Practice, the new edition of Promoting Equality provides an account of the significance of discrimination and oppression in the human services - nursing, social work and social care, youth and community work, professions allied to medicine and other forms of professional practice in which pèople work' is to the fore. The book explores the theory and practice of promoting equality, emphasizing both the major imperative of tackling inequality and the difficulties and demands of doing so. Critical of the orthodoxies and oversimplifications of pòlitical correctness', Promoting Equality examines the theoretical underpinnings of this complex area and the very real challenges of making equality practice a reality."
  • "This second edition captures the latest developments in theorizing around discrimination, oppression and diversity, widening its analysis to reflect the increasingly multi-professional nature of the literature in this important field. It retains the focus on practice which was such an asset to the first edition and it treats the connections between theoretical debate and grassroots practice with sensitivity and sophistication."--BOOK JACKET
