From the Back Cover:

This best-selling text, now in its Tenth Edition, continues to give students a thorough introduction to the field of social work, with unique attention paid toward the diverse groups with whom social workers provide services, including children, older adults, disabled persons, and members of minority racial and ethnic groups.

“I can always rely on the currency of data and information in the Morales and Sheafor text. Having frequent updated editions of the text makes it an attractive text selection. Social Work is an area that is constantly changing and evolving and it is very important to have a text that presents current data and information.”
Carol J. Bridges, East Central University
