Street-level bureaucrats, a broad group of front-line workers made up of a range of occupational groups, are similarly treated as a uniform group, but one which, unlike managers, is unencumbered by concerns and commitments outside the self-interest needed to survive in ‘the corrupted world of service’. Lipsky recognises that street-level bureaucracies employ a range of staff with different occupational status in front-line.

Discretion has re-emerged as an issue of central importance for welfare professionals over the last two decades in the face of an intensification of management culture across the public sector. This book presents an innovative framework for the analysis of discretion, offering three accounts of the managerial role - the domination model, the street level model and the author's alternative discursive perspective. These different regimes of discretion are examined through a case study within a social services department, comparing and contrasting social work discretion in an Older Persons Team and a Mental Health Team. This innovative, theoretical and empirical analysis will be of great interest to postgraduate students and researchers in social work and related disciplines including social policy, public administration and organizational studies, as well as professionals in social work, health and education.
