Foretelling the History of Social Work: A Botswana Perspective


SKU: N/A Category:


This book by Kgomotso Jongman, a Social Work Lecturer at the University of Botswana provides an insight into the growth and development of the social work profession in one of fastest developing countries in southern Africa. The author provides an insight into how social work has developed in this rapidly changing country from pre-colonial, colonial and then post-colonial times to the present day, how its history has been shaped by the traditional structures of Batswana life and communal values to more organised community development and now professional social work practice.

The International Federation of Social Workers (IFSW) is pleased to publish this book as the first in a new series of online publications that highlight practical social work from around the world.
