Synopsis

Covering important social work issues aimed at today's students, paired articles 'talk to each other,' thus setting up a clear 'pro-con' format. Each pair of readings features an introduction with a list of 'Points to Ponder' which introduces students to the issues they'll encounter as they read, and ends with a conclusion entitled 'The Continuing Debate.' The book serves as a supplemental text to be used in Social Work Policy classes at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
