Additional Information:This article applies sociological theories of reflexive modernity, individualization and �life politics' to social work and attempts to re-conceptualize the fundamental concerns of the discipline in late-modernity. It was the first of its kind to make this sociological paradigm relevant to social work. It is seen by many as a landmark publication, having generated significant debate, including an exchange of articles with one critic which was described by the outgoing editors of the British Journal of Social Work (Vol. 35, 5: 639 � 653, 2005) as the �liveliest and most talked about in the history of the journal'.
