In The Press

‘Pilgrim provides a text here that is broad-ranging in scope; identifying and critically considering conceptual, policy and practice matters. The written style and structure of the text is accessible to a wide audience; with a clear and commanding presentation of technical detail in addition to thought-provoking examples, philosophical and sociological analyses. This latest edition builds upon the successes of those which have come before and provides a valuable go-to resource for students, lecturers, researchers and practitioners alike.’
