Multicultural Issues in Social Work is a collection of 38 insightful chapters gathered from the 1994 and 1995 issues of four highly respected NASW Press journals: Social Work, Health & Social Work, Social Work in Education, and Social Work Research. Chapters were selected for their focus on and relevance to the many aspects of multicultural social work practice that challenge today's human services professionals.

This timely work approaches multicultural practice from a variety of current perspectives. It examines the differences and similarities in the experiences, needs, and beliefs of people in different population groups and provides a wealth of information that will help researchers, policymakers, and practitioners in their work with diverse populations.

Educators will find Multicultural Issues in Social Work superb for teaching courses that meet curriculum policy requirements for content about diversity. The book is also an excellent text for classes focused on economic justice and populations at risk. Agencies that work with diverse populations will find it useful for in-service training and as a ready reference on issues of multicultural practice.
