This is a comprehensive collection of the book chapters and journal articles published on Pasifika social work issues in Aotearoa New Zealand in the last 10 years. It is the first annotated bibliography of its kind. Every entry is directly related to social work and has a helpful short description, giving an immediate overview of the formal literature in the field. Faleolo especially focuses on highlighting Pasifika ways of thinking and working that can inform Pasifika-oriented models of social work practice. It covers material relevant to the Samoan, Tongan, Cook Island, Niuean, Fijian, Tokelauan and mixed-ethnicity communities.
Aimed primarily at social work students, practitioners, service providers, policy makers, academics, trainers, administrators and other supporters of social work will also find this an essential and significant publication.
