Though the aims of social work tend to be fairly similar in different contexts around the world, the ways in which social workers are educated and trained vary widely from place to place and nation to nation. This book gathers a dozen interviews with leading social workers and educators from countries including India, the United States, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Mexico, and Switzerland to explore points of similarity and difference and see what lessons we might be able to learn from the successes or limitations of the different approaches.

Review Quotes
Steve Myers, University of Salford
"This important book reminds social work education that it has a history, with its own heroes who spearheaded the international development of the profession through a commitment to social justice and academic rigor."
