Underscoring the belief that approaches to social welfare have changed over the decades, while the needs to which the social work profession respond remain much the same, the authors offer a text that helps students develop a frame of reference to understand social welfare and an approach to address social issues which will serve them well in times of committment and retrenchment.

"Chapter 3 is the best summary of ecological systems theory I have ever read...A major strength of the book is the chapter on rural social work..."
"Excellent...It is so interesting and easy to read that the student will read it and then be able to use it as a starting point for class discussion."
