Editors: Herrmann, Peter (University of Cork, Ireland)
Book Description:
This is the first volume in a series on recent developments, international and comparative perspectives. As social professions are more and more forced to walk a pathway of cut-backs and political restrictions under supposedly democratic goals, this book aims at taking an active part in the international debate around the political responsibility of those working in the field, aiming as well at bringing together the different areas of professional work in the social science field.
The contributions of the first volume deal with subjects connected to social integration - the more practically oriented contributions are:
* The systems of guaranteeing sufficient resources in the Republic of France and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (Herrmann/Zielinski);
* Anti-racism, citizenship and integration in contemporary France (Gibb);
* Enduring Inequalities in Transitions to Labour: Class, Education and Community Disadvantage in Ireland (Burgess)
Two further contributions on Faith, State and Charity (Powell) and aspects of the changing political environment of applied social studies: "You can get there only from here" (O'Carroll) complement the volume.
