"Lena Dominelli's extremely readable book not only analyzes the dynamics of globalization but points the way forward to a more compassionate world in which international collaboration rather than exploitation characterizes the human condition. Social workers have much to learn from her insightful analysis."
James Midgley, University of California, Berkeley
"Lena Dominelli has always been at the forefront of commenting on some of the key issues for social work education and practice in our fast changing world. This book is a significant contribution to the contemporary debates and will prove both controversial and important. I encourage you to engage with it."
Keith Popple, London South Bank University
"This book presents to the reader complex issues, debates and arguments in Professor Dominelli's characteristically informal and engaging narrative style. The breadth of issue she covers is wide and all encompassing. This book ensures that social work scholarship will survive the present challenges of ‘legitimacy and porous borders' and help re-position social work in the forefront of critical debates in the globalised world."
Carolyn Noble, Victoria University, Melbourne
