Summary, etc.:
"The New Structural Social Work presents a coherent and consistent theory of progressive social work. With oppression as its central focus, the text demonstrates the shortcoming of welfare capitalism as a social system and how conventional social work fails to respond to systemic social problems. Emphasizing a progressive social work ethic, this text explores how students can incorporate a radical alternative to conventional social work within their own practice. Authors Bob Mullaly and Marilyn Dupré have fully updated this much-anticipated new edition."-- Provided by publisher.
