Community and Youth Work
As a Youth and Community course - this is one of the key texts for my students. It is clearly written and well researched with up to date case studies and research. A good introductory text for youth and Community Students.
This book is an essential introductory read for anyone entering the field of youth work. A good insight and background to both history and policy of youth work to current times and the transformation and values of the recent integrated services. A very useful book that can be applied across several domains of study for graduate students.
Useful all round introduction for those new to area and just starting BA Yand Cc
An excellent text that cleary explains the theory of youth work in an understanable and accessible manner.
Yet another excellent text from Learning Matters - the format and case studies continues to aid learning
This is a useful text for new students on youth and community studies courses. It is written in Batsleer's usual accessible yet intellectually grounded style. It provides a theorised account of youth work upon which courses can build.
