The demand for ethnic-sensitive social services in the twenty-first century continues to grow as ethnic diversity in the United States increases. With demographic projections revealing that populations of color will eventually outnumber Whites, helping professionals are increasingly challenged to define and deliver ethnic-sensitive services. In their meticulously documented and well-organized second edition, Iglehart and Becerra stress that analysis of the origins, evolution, and current state of social service delivery systems to ethnic communities is vital to the provision of ethnic-sensitive practice.

Up-to-date sources provide expanded discussions of ethnic and racial-group history in the United States, White ethnics and their services, ethnicity and the development of social work, and the linkage of mainstream agencies to ethnic communities. Ethnic-sensitive practice is a puzzle that can be assembled through an understanding of the past, identification of contemporary issues, and recognition of the significance of race and ethnicity in American society. Through a synthesis of historical, theoretical, and empirical literature, this important work can empower social service providers to effectively address the needs of ethnic minorities and provide them with increased validation, visibility, and voice within their communities.

Review:

"The relevance of this book to social work faculty, students, and practitioners is fourfold. First, every chapter includes excellent reviews of current literature offering a nice flow of topics in the development of the argument. Second, the book offers foundational evidence to understand the roots of the profession in a complex historical period mediated by industrialization, internal migration, and immigration patterns. Third, the authors are not presenting minority groups only as victims of discrimination and racism, but rather as groups that were able to develop their own agencies to overcome oppression and marginalization. Fourth, this book is fundamental for a historical understanding of modern multicultural social work practice. Overall, Iglehart and Becerra's book is highly recommended not only for faculty teaching welfare policy, social service delivery, voluntary sector, and community development and social administration courses, but also for practitioners working in the areas of community organizing and policy advocacy." --Journal of Ethnic and Cultural Diversity in Social Work
