Diversity, Oppression, and Change explores the relationship between cultural diversity, oppression, and social change and their implications for the social work profession and allied fields. The culturally grounded perspective describes specific ways of helping and integrates these methods into social work practice, policy, and research. This book moves beyond cultural awareness to provide a theoretical framework, a comprehensive review of methods, and applied case studies as tools for integrating essential knowledge about the cultural backgrounds of communities and clients into everyday interactions.

Stephen Kulis (MA, PhD, Columbia University) is professor of sociology and director of research at the Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center (SIRC) at Arizona State University. His research focuses on the role of ethnicity, acculturation, and gender identity in youth drug use; on gender and racial inequities in professional careers; and on the organizational sources of discrimination. Some of the projects he is currently directing at the center are studies on youth drug use in Monterrey, Mexico, in Phoenix elementary and middle schools, and in American Indian communities surrounding Phoenix.
This is a smart book. The authors do an outstanding job of integrating and synthesizing a great deal of theoretical and practical information. It is a rare book on diversity that comes alive. It is not merely a rehashing of old ideas, but represents a new and innovative perspective. --Rich Furman, University of North Carolina, Charlotte
