Publisher: M.E. Sharpe | ISBN: 0765608200 | edition 2005 | PDF | 329 pages | 3,3 mb

It focuses on the experiences of rural-urban migrants, the particular ways in which they talk about those experiences, and how those experiences affect their sense of identity.

Malcolm Payne, Gurid Aga Askeland - Globalization and international social work: Postmodern change and challenge
2008 | ISBN: 0754649466 | PDF | 188 pages | 1.05 MB
Globalization challenges social work with constant social change, making a social worker's job and the task of social work education more complex and uncertain. Post-modern thinking suggests that social workers must learn to cope with complexity in ways that are in tension with the increasingly managerialist organization of the social services. The authors explore and question the concepts of 'postmodern', 'international' and 'global' in the light of growing interest in international social work in the early 21st century.
