    An important and influential book called Youth Work, published in 1987 and edited by Tony Jeffs and Mark Smith, set out to explore the multifaceted nature of youth work and the way in which the role of the youth worker draws on aspects of numerous other professions, occupations and pursuits. The title of each chapter begins with the words "Youth Workers as..." and then an additional word or term is inserted, including; Social workers: educators: community workers: entrepreneurs: character builders: redcoats (referring to the entertainment staff at Butlins holiday camp).
