Summary
More urgent than ever, David G. Gil's guiding text gives social workers the knowledge and confidence they need to change unjust realities. Clarifying the meaning, sources, and dynamics of injustice, exploitation, and oppression, and certifying the place of the social worker in combating these conditions, Gil promotes social change strategies rooted in the nonviolent philosophies of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King. He shares suggestions for transition policies intended to alleviate poverty, unemployment, and discrimination and examines modes of radical social work practice compatible with the United Nations' "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" and President Roosevelt's proposed "Economic Bill of Rights." For this second edition, Gil considers two crucial developments since his volume's initial publication: the Middle East's "Arab Spring" and the United States' Occupy Wall Street movement
