Shulman (U. of Buffalo, State U. of New York) presents the fifth edition of a textbook for use in first-year introductory courses on social work practice. The newest edition has been reduced from the 1999 edition's 800-plus pages to 600-plus. It incorporates new and updated material on emerging practice areas in social work—the AIDS epidemic, homelessness, substance abuse/addictions, and sexual violence; social policies, including managed care and welfare reform; a more thorough integration of Shulman's holistic theory of practice; considerations when dealing with oppressed and vulnerable populations; and updated discussion of the historical roots, values and ethics of the profession. The two accompanying CD-ROMs contain illustrations of identified skills and excerpts from an interactive workshop. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
