Synopsis : Following campaigning fifty years ago, the Albemarle Report established the first modern Youth Service. This is now being dismantled and this passionate and polemical book calls for a new culture for youth work, drawing on the best of youth work's past. Doug Nicholls, a professional and trade union leader of youth workers for over thirty years, identifies what youth workers have achieved and which major changes must take place if their practice is to keep up with the radically altered world. The book distils the author's unique and extensive experience to look at the political and economic contexts, and the new disorder of inequality. Against these he sets the ideas of youth work and public services and the struggles for them. He argues for a new self awareness amongst youth workers on class, professionalism, trade unionism, socialism and the state. He redefines reflective practice, leadership and completely debunks the idea of positive activities as a diversion from political education. This accessible and challenging book is essential reading for students and practitioners and policy makers.
Critique: "Extremely accessible, this will challenge and appeal to youth workers, students, academics and policy makers alike. Essential and timely reading." --Kev Henman, Divisional Youth Officer, Devon Youth Service. "Doug Nicholls' book makes a passionate case for defending youth work's potential as a powerful transformative force. This is essential reading for all those concerned with youth and community work." --Marjorie Mayo, Goldsmiths', University of London. "Doug Nicholls' message - the need for a new youth work for a new century - is sometimes polemical, often provocative, invariably partisan and always passionate. But it is principled, and it is essential that we reflect carefully on his words." --Howard Williamson, Professor of European Youth Policy, University of Glamorgan "a refreshing and illuminating read" --Children and Young People Now "For Youth Workers and Youth Work is an accessible, essential and timely read for statutory and voluntary sector service managers, youth workers, educationalists, students and policy makers interested in the wellbeing of young people in Britain both now and in the future, and how best to promote youth work. I strongly recommend it." Youth and Policy journal
