An awareness of one’s own ethical assumptions and how these inform everyday practice is crucial for all student social workers. Social workers who genuinely wish to do the right thing by their services users have no alternative but to constantly think and rethink the principles and assumptions that inform their actions, and this book supports them on their journey to do just that. This third edition is set out in two parts: Part I deals with broad ideas about values and ethics in general, looking at philosophy, religion and politics, as well as the duty of realism. Part II takes the discussion further, looking at how these general principles are relevant to everyday practice, with chapters on the use and misuse of power, the idea of self-determination, and the challenges of working with people whose experience and outlook are different to one’s own.

Marcia B. Cohen and Cheryl A. Hyde's book, Empowering Workers and Clients for Organizational Change, prepares students to successfully engage in organizational change practice. The editors focus on "low power actors"-students, line staff, volunteers, clients, social workers-who can utilize their experience and knowledge gained from client and community interaction to initiate broad scale change. These workers are often the most informed about the clients' needs and are well positioned to collaborate with clients, constituents, supervisors, and managers in ways that can empower everyone. The contributing authors provide extensive case examples of real-life organizational change instituted by low-power actors that demonstrate the theories discussed throughout the book. They then go on to discuss strategies to assess the structural characteristics of agencies, organizational culture, and empowerment. This book also covers present force field analysis as an assessment framework to help promote change within human service agencies at the client service level.

This classic work, long out of print, recounts the experiences of an African American teacher during his first year working in a Harlem elementary school in the 1960s. Though written more than forty years ago, the diary still rings true to the experience of many beginning teachers today. The" New York Times Book Review" called Haskins's diary "a weapon--cold, blunt, painful" and Look magazine said it "will be read a generation hence as a classic of one aspect of American education." As Herbert Kohl discusses in his new foreword, " Diary of a Harlem Schoolteacher" is a dramatic reminder of how much educational work there is still to do.
