"What I like most about this text is that it taught students to think critically about theory and provided them with the tools for doing so. From this perspective this is a very valuable text for graduate students."
Highly recommended text for social work students on qualifying courses
This is a very well written book that would assist any student in undertaking advanced studies within an area of social research and human understanding.
The applications referred to in the text integrate nicely to stretching the mind in developing greater comprehension in aspects of human behaviour theory that will transcend across many disciplines within the social sciences. Any post graduate student studying in the social sciences would benefit from reading this book, as it is insightful and a interesting read.
Don't like focus as well as Hutchinson
