The Council for Social Work Education (CSWE) new Curriculum Policy Standards are thoroughly discussed and incorporated in this new edition of this well-known book. Written from a community organizing and social change perspective, each chapter focuses on a specific community (e.g. Chicanos, Philipino-Americans, Southeast Asians).

The chapter authors have followed a common format in applying relevant theories and methods of practice for community organizing to their specific communities, including coverage of child welfare, the Welfare Reform Act, Aids, and other topics. Also, this new edition includes a discussion of the moral and ethical dilemmas inherent in organizing with communities of color.
