"A very important and valuable argument for social work's engagement with environmental issues … Hopefully, it will be seen as a step along the path to a truly and deeply transformed social work."
British Journal of Social Work
"A rallying cry for the 're-politicisation' of social work."
Professional Social Work
"This book could not be more timely. The global crisis caused by climate change, environmental degradation, and food and water insecurity has created fertile ground for global inequalities. The role of social work in intersecting between people and policy can ensure that the human rights of the most vulnerable are protected and that socially just solutions are enacted. I applaud Lena Dominelli on her book and see it becoming a seminal social work text."
Margaret Alston, Monash University
"Lena Dominelli has done it yet again with another first in social work education! In Green Social Work, she combines her usual interests in human rights, poverty and inequality, and social justice with that of climate justice. Pragmatic intervention strategies and case studies are provided that make the book a necessary companion for educators, practitioners and students of social work and related disciplines."
Vishanthie Sewpaul, University of KwaZulu Natal
"Green Social Work makes an important contribution to explicating the links between the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Lena Dominelli convincingly argues that social workers are key to articulating the social with the environmental, and provides environmentalists with valuable insights into the ways in which societies' more vulnerable people and communities experience social-environmental disadvantage."
Susan Buckingham, Brunel University
