This comprehensive text explores the theory and methods in nine arenas of macro social work at the community, organizational, societal, and global levels of practice. Intended for undergraduate and graduate social work students who want to make a difference in today's modern society, this text challenges readers to use their concern, their values and their critical thinking skills to assist those who have been left out and kept out of making decisions that affect their lives, empowering them to reclaim a wholesome, healthy social environment for themselves and their children. The book's generalist orientation provides an organizational framework as well as generous amounts of history, biographical material on leading macro social workers, illustrative contemporary examples, and factual data that offers real life detail for students. Most important, however, is the depth and wealth of practical information that assists students in understanding how to help people engage in solving social problems and making social change to bring about a more just society and humane global civilization.
