This book introduces readers to the profession of social work as it is practiced in the cities. The book utilizes a social systems perspective and helps readers to recognize the linkages between social welfare policy and social work practice within the context of urban social problems. Systems theory is important because it stresses direct practice, the role of the agency and social action.
