Through its global approach, Sowers and Rowe's book encourages students to think critically about oppression and social justice issues at home and around the world. As a fundamental premise, the book establishes that social work practice needs to move from the local to the global in order for social justice to prevail. By shifting toward the broader study of institutional oppression and social justice advocacy, the authors also address the CSWE requirement to provide global content in the undergraduate and graduate curriculums. Throughout the text, articles, quotes and examples powerfully illustrate the key issues.
