*Summary: This review, which draws mainly but not exclusively on UK material, explores the social work literature on managing risk and uncertainty, with emphasis on community care. Risk has become a major, if not over-arching, preoccupation in social work, reflected in a huge upsurge of written by: This book provides a detailed and comprehensive guide to working with risk.
