Brooks/Cole Empowerment Series: Foundations of Social Policy (with CourseMate Printed Access Card): Social Justice in Human Perspective 5th Edition
Reflecting the idea that social justice is a primary mission of the social work profession, this text provides a thorough grounding in policy analysis-with extensive coverage of policy practice and a unique emphasis on the broad issues and human dilemmas inherent in the pursuit of social justice. The book introduces several philosophical perspectives on what constitutes social justice, and identifies values and assumptions reflected in contemporary policy debates. FOUNDATIONS OF SOCIAL POLICY, Fifth Edition, part of the BROOKS/COLE EMPOWERMENT SERIES, integrates the core competencies and practice behaviors outlined in the 2008 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). Numerous updates, on topics ranging from women in combat and elder abuse to the DOMA decision and movements against public employee unions, showcase the profound impact of current events on policy issues and social justice in the United States and internationally. This edition also includes access to CourseMate, which offers online interactive learning, study, and exam preparation tools that support the printed textbook.
