Confronting Injustice and Oppression : Concepts and Strategies for Social Workers Paperback / softback
by David G. Gil
Part of the Foundations of Social Work Knowledge Series series
How can injustice and oppression be overcome and prevented, regardless of who the victims are?
What are the meanings, sources, and dynamics of these dehumanizing conditions?
David Gil brings to these questions a lifetime of experience in social action and in social work practice and education.
Writing for human services professionals, students, and activists, he sounds the call to embrace the core values of radical social work: equality, liberty, cooperation, and affirmation of community in pursuit of individual and social development.
Gil identifies violence, unemployment, racism, and poverty as the chief injustices in society, and outlines the steps that must be taken in order to confront and abolish these through education and activism.
