Review

"The most impressive aspect of this book is that the authors chose to present the complexity of social work organization practice over a more simplistic description. This book provides a framework useful for thinking about how to be a social worker at the organization level, moving towards the incorporation of difference and diversity as an avenue towards social justice both within the organization and in the organization’s relationships with the greater community. Developing the self-awareness and critical thinking necessary to navigate such paradoxical realities is the focus of this extraordinary book." (Virginia Commonwealth University School of Social Work Newsletter, June 9, 2009)
