What the reviewers are saying...
I will definitely continue to use the text because I think it does a wonderful job conceptualizing the issues related to management, and my students have stated that it is very easy to read.
—Jenny Jones, University of Tennessee
This new emphasis on the ubiquity of ‘management’ at all levels of social work practice...gives this text the widest possible applicability to the current and future social work profession, and to those who teach at all levels and concentrations of social work education, both in the academy and in fields of practice ---Nancy W.
