Decision-making, Personhood and Dementia: Exploring the Interface. Eds. D. O'Connor and B. Purves. (Book Review)

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

It is inevitable that when reviewing a high-quality book one can find areas of disagreement, especially when the author, as Sercombe has, offers a coherent review of a broad area of youth work theory and practice. With one breath I want to say it is not the book I would have written—and more on its limitations later—but with the next breath declare it to be a book worth writing and reading. This book is a significant contribution to academic thinking about youth work ethics, and is presented in a style and format suitable for both under- and postgraduate students in youth work and related fields. Not only does Sercombe indicate the practical implications of his view but he also enables the reader to engage in a critical consideration of that view's foundations.
