This thorough comprehensive text covers the important components of macro social work practice, including research, community and organization development, social action and planning, and administrative tasks. The author views macro practice as the key to social work in the future, carrying on a long and rich tradition of social work in solving social problems and making social change. The author's unique "action social theory" provides an organizational framework for the book. This theory is based on the fact that one of the most important characteristics of the self is the individual's active engagement in the construction of social reality and creating social meaning as people interact with one another. The book takes a position that macro social workers are most centrally positioned of any helping professionals to make a lasting impact on our social world. Intriguing and motivating examples throughout help students see how the book's policy action focus works in effecting social change in the real world of government, community groups, and other organizations.

Review:

"This is a strong text in the macro practice of social work. The planned revisions can only serve to strengthen it."

"A wide-ranging and comprehensive text on macro social work practice. As in the previous editions, the vignettes at the beginning of each chapter set the mood and tone for the chapter and captures the interest of the reader."

"Strengths: ·Strong historical reviews under each chapter ·Well-researched. ·There is such a wealth of information that educators don't have to supplement the text with other textbooks. ·Addition of e-advocacy is a plus. ·Globalization is further discussed in this edition, and as a result, it is a much welcome revision."
