An extensive review of one of the most admired books on social work theory, Malcolm Payne has substantially reworked the content as well as the organization of this important theory book in response to the suggestions of academics and practitioners, while retaining the clarity and critical analysis of the previous edition. Used in practice and human behavior courses around the world, this valuable text is still the only one of its kind.

It provides one of the more thorough and complete reviews of contemporary social work practice theories. I am as enthusiastic about this text today as I was when I received the manuscript of the first edition over 13 years ago. The text has only become richer and once again, Malcolm Payne has provided a stimulating contribution to our profession. --Stephen C. Anderson, New Mexico State University
