What Reviewers Are Saying: "This book offers practice knowledge that is relevant, important, and timely, is exactlywhat I have been searching for, and contains information that is necessary for today's social workers….What [is] different in this proposed text is the depth of discussion of various cultures and challenges that we must address in our jobs, but which is (usually) only minimally discussed in other texts." --Jill C. Keogh, University of Missouri, Columbia "The main attraction of this book is that it addresses critical issues: history, dynamics, issues in a global and changing society. These are issues that sometimes get overlooked in other texts….I would definitely be interested in using this text." --Susan Bowers, Northern Illinois University "These chapters are well-written, sufficiently analytical and critical, and interesting for students to read. The case vignettes discussed in various chapters are key strengths of the text." --Sharon C.
