Reflecting an emerging consensus that social justice is a primary mission of the social work profession, this innovative 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. Organized in four parts, the book introduces several philosophical perspectives on what constitutes social justice, and identifies the values and assumptions reflected in contemporary policy debates. Users develop a theoretical framework for determining when a personal disadvantage is considered a social problem. Theories of discrimination and oppression are discussed in the text and explore the challenges faced by vulnerable populations, including people of color, gays and lesbians, children, women, working Americans, and the elderly.
