In addition to over 30 publications, Hilary Weaver has edited two books: VOICES OF FIRST NATIONS PEOPLE: HUMAN SERVICE CONSIDERATIONS, and HEALTH AND THE AMERICAN INDIAN (with Priscilla Day). She is also President of the American Indian Alaska Native Social Work Educators' Association and Chair of the American Indian Caucus of the National Association of Social Workers.Review:
"Excellent coverage of important historical events is presented. ..A major strength of this text is the range of groups considered, both within historical context as well as their current situation. These historical and current considerations are well related to the practice of social work with each population group."
"The strength of this book lies on its content on diverse groups. It is written on a level that is very easy to understand."
"This text has a unique contribution in that it utilizes the voices of professionals from ethnically diverse groups. The case examples are more relevant to students' learning about cultural diversity The citations and refences are superb and draw upon empirical research in our field. One of the outstanding elements that sets it apart from the current texts is that it draws from multiple disciplines to explain the milieu of cultural diversity." "I would describe this book as one that is on the cutting edge and has information that will enable a colleague to discuss a sensitive topic that students are often resistant to or uncomfortable with. The depth and breadth of this text adds to its vitality and most definitely expands the knowledge base in this area."
