LETTER FROM THE SOCIAL WORK EDITOR: I am delighted to present the latest offerings in social work from Columbia University Press. A number of our newest books explore the complexities of family dynamics. Adult Sibling Relationships by Geoffrey L. Greif and Michael E. Woolley analyzes the powerful, yet rarely studied, role that siblings can play in our lives as we age. Rhonda M. Roorda vividly describes the benefits and challenges of transracial adoption in In Their Voices, as do Rowena Fong and Ruth McRoy in their comprehensive edited volume, Transracial and Intercountry Adoptions. Alexandra Butler, a young and highly gifted new writer (and recent MSW) offers a searing account of what it was like to care for her dying mother in Walking the Night Road. And in The Lioness in Winter, Ann Burack-Weiss offers a poetic and moving account of one social worker’s attempts to come to terms with her own experience of aging. I hope that these and all our wonderful new works are not only beneficial on a professional level, but also profoundly moving on a personal one. Jennifer Perillo, Senior Executive Editor jp3187@columbia. edu

"An exciting presentation of the authors' study of middle and late adulthood relationships. It debunks generalizations that lob siblings into a static category, such as birth order. The brothers and sisters in this study demonstrate that this significant relationship is not static. Covering frequently overlooked topics such as parental interference in adult siblings' lives, emergency health crises, and sibling cut-offs, as well as extensive case studies, this is an excellent resource book for clinicians and for brothers and sisters." —Karen Gail Lewis, coeditor, Siblings in Therapy With in-depth case studies of more than 260 siblings over the age of forty and interviews with experts on mental health and family interaction, this book offers vital direction for traversing the emotional terrain of adult sibling relations. It pursues a richer understanding of ambivalence, a normal though little explored feeling among siblings, and provides specific suggestions for realizing new, productive avenues of friendship in middle and later life—skills that are particularly important for siblings who must cooperate to care for aging parents or give immediate emotional or financial support to other siblings or family members. $30.00 / £20.00 paper 978-0-231-16517-4 $90.00 / £62.00 cloth 978-0-231-16516-7 2015 320 pages

In Their Voices Black Americans on Transracial Adoption

Transracial and Intercountry Adoptions

Rhonda M. Roorda

Cultural Guidance for Professionals

"In the fourth installment of In Their Voices, Roorda delivers the missing voice of black and biracial non-adopted adults on the topic of race, family, identity and adoption. The transcribed interviews, laid bare without analysis, convey the keen insights of her participants as well as pieces of her own story." — Gina M. Samuels, University of Chicago Rhonda Roorda examines how social attitudes and federal policies concerning transracial adoption have changed over the last several decades. She also includes suggestions on how to revise transracial adoption policy to better reflect the needs of transracial adoptive families and advice for parents who are invested in nurturing a positive selfimage in their adopted children of color and the crucial perspectives those parents should consider when raising their children.

Edited by Rowena Fong and Ruth McRoy "This excellent book notes the increasing diversity in American families, many of which have been formed through transracial and/ or intercountry adoption. The book will be a valuable resource for mental health practitioners, medical doctors, teachers, child welfare workers, even adoptive parents." —Malinda Seymore, Texas A&M University, School of Law

$27.95 / £19.95 paper 978-0-231-17221-9

For social workers, child welfare workers, psychologists, physicians, teachers--any practitioner in need of an up-to-date, broadranging reference--this book addresses key developmental, cultural, health, and behavioral issues that can emerge during the transracial and international adoption process. It also provides recommendations for avoiding fraud and coercion and techniques for navigating domestic and foreign adoption laws.

Ellyn KaschaK Spiritual Assessment in Social Work and Mental Health Practice

Sight Unseen

David R. Hodge

Ellyn Kaschak

"This text is a great synthesis of the author's many years of study and numerous articles researching the topic of spiritual assessment... An excellent textbook for both social work students and practitioners... Authoritative and practical." — Journal of Teaching in Social Work "A unique and indispensible resource for all helping professionals who are committed to holistic, strengths-oriented, ethical, and competent practice, regardless of their personal spiritual or religious beliefs. Evidence-based and scholarly, clearly written and trans-disciplinary, client-focused and practical." — David Sherwood, Editor-in-chief, Social Work & Christianity $40.00 / £27.50 cloth 978-0-231-16396-5 2015 224 pages / 20 illus.

Gender and Race Through Blind Eyes

"A tour de force. Ellyn Kaschak gives readers fascinating portraits of the life worlds of blind people—people who experience the social world and themselves without recourse to the visual. How, she asks, do blind people conjure up race, gender, sexual orientation, desire, and desirability? Her answers continually upend commonsense. By showing us what and how the blind 'see,' Kaschak makes evident the filters and lenses that all of us see through." — Jeanne Marecek, Swarthmore College "From one of the most fertile and creative minds of our generation comes this original and innovative narrative of the social construction of race and gender among the blind and the sighted. The reader is first startled and then entrenched to learn the invisibility of assumptions about race and gender built right in to ordinary vision. It teaches us about privilege, compassion and our powerful search for belonging." — Judge Elizabeth Odio Benito, Former Vice President and Judge, International Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia $40.00 / £27.50 cloth 978-0-231-17290-5 2015 208 pages

Critical Issues in Child Welfare

Adolescents in Public Housing

Second Edition

Addressing Psychological and Behavioral Health

Joan Foster Shireman "Joan Shireman's second edition is an excellent comprehensive resource on policies and practices impacting child welfare service delivery today, such as family preservation, permanency planning, child protective services decision making, open adoptions, transracial adoptions, kinship care, international adoptions, and service delivery to youth in transition and youth with disabilities. This book provides a unique contextual look at the intersection between systems (juvenile justice, mental health, and child welfare) and social issues (poverty, substance abuse, and violence in the community)." — Ruth McRoy, Boston College Graduate School of Social Work New material highlights the recent discoveries of the impact of early trauma and stress on children's development, and the modifications currently taking place in the child welfare system in response to this new information. $75.00 / $52.00 cloth 978-0-231-16078-0


Von E. Nebbitt "This book purposefully analyzes and incorporates community context to advance a strengths-based approach to intervention with troubled youth. The environmental systems on which it draws are extensive (family, community, and neighborhood), and their influence on both the positive and negative aspects of adolescent mental health are analyzed in depth." —Elizabeth Danto, professor of social work emeritus, Hunter College Adolescents in Public Housing incorporates data from multiple public-housing sites in large U.S. cities to shine much-needed light on African American youth living in nonHOPE VI public-housing neighborhoods. With findings grounded in research, the book gives practitioners and policy makers a solid grasp of the attitudes toward deviance, alcohol and drug abuse, and depressive symptoms characterizing these communities, and links them explicitly to gaps in policy and practice.

To Live and Work in a Social Welfare Home

The Lioness in Winter

Sociological Study of Interactions Between Personnel and Mentally Disabled Wards

Ann Burack-Weiss

Writing an Old Woman's Life

Jakub Niedbalski This book follows the treatment of a mentally disabled person from an institutional perspective, in which a unit is presented as an objectified subject of other people's actions. From the patient's perspective, this situation creates a feeling of isolation and personal dependence, and from the personnel's perspective, it illumniates how they respect the autonomy and self-determination of their charges. Niedbalski shows how to create, maintain, and reconstruct social order within a nursing home and achieve internal balance and stabilization within a care institution. $50.00 / £34.50 paper 978-83-233-3808-6 2015 300 pages Jagiellonian University Press

"Filled with warmth, wisdom, and knowledge, Burack-Weiss's work eloquently encourages dialogue and understanding about the inner and outer life of aging women." —Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review) When she started working with the aged more than forty years ago, Ann BurackWeiss began storing the knowledge and skills she thought would help when she got old herself. It was not until she hit her mid-seventies that she realized she had packed sneakers to climb Mount Everest, not anticipating the crevices and chasms that constitute the rocky terrain of old age. The professional gerontological and social work literature offered little help, so she turned to the late-life works of such beloved women authors as Maya Angelou, Colette, Simone de Beauvoir, Joan Didion, Marguerite Duras, M. F. K. Fisher, Doris Lessing, Mary Oliver, Adrienne Rich, May Sarton, and Florida Scott-Maxwell. This book is filled with powerful passages from women who turned their experiences of aging into art, and Burack-Weiss ties their words to her own struggles and epiphanies, framing their collective observations with key insights from social work practice. $30.00 / £20.00 cloth 978-0-231-15184-9 2015 208 pages

Walking the Night Road

A Transition

A Coming of Age in Grief

Monika Renz Translated by Mark Kyburz and John Peck

"A bold, probing investigation into how analogies and metaphors provide fresh access to dying as the ultimate mystery of human potential. A skillful analysis of patient vignettes render palpable many ineffable and unconscious dynamics of patients' experiences as they move from conventional ego-based schema through personal, transformative, beautiful, and even painful transitions. This insightful work is a compass for reducing suffering among the dying and the living." —Bruce L. Arnold, University of Calgary Drawing on decades of work with terminally ill cancer patients and a trove of research on near-death experiences, Monika Renz encourages practitioners to not only safeguard patients' dignity as they die but also take stock of their verbal, nonverbal, and metaphorical cues as they progress, helping to personalize treatment and realize a more peaceful death.

Alexandra Butler "A detailed, beautifully written, insightful account of the process of dying and of living— it's difficult to put down. Butler is able to use her words to breathe life into the people she is writing about and provide the reader with an ability to enter their lives as observers who can nearly feel the sun, shudder in the cold, and hear the creak of the floors." —Jeanette Takamura, Dean, Columbia School of Social Work More than a memoir of dying and grief, Butler's account also tests many of the theories her parents pioneered in their work on healthy aging. Authors of such seminal works as Love and Sex After Sixty, Butler's parents were forced to rethink many of the tenets they lived by while Myrna was incapacitated, and Butler's father found himself relying heavily on his daughter to provide his wife's care. $25.00 / £17.50 paper 978-0-231-16753-6

Ageing and Technology Perspectives from the Social Sciences

Understanding Brain Aging and Dementia

Edited by Emma Domínguez-Rué

A Life Course Approach

and Linda Nierling

Lawrence J. Whalley

The booming increase of the senior population has become a social phenomenon and a challenge to our societies, and technological advances have undoubtedly contributed to improve the lives of elderly citizens in numerous aspects. Technology, however, has largely ignored the "human factor" and has often viewed the ageing individual as a malfunctioning machine whose deficiencies must be diagnosed—or as a set of limitations to be overcome by means of technological devices. This volume aims at focusing on the subjective needs and fears of human beings deriving from the development and use of technology: this change of perspective —taking the human being and not technology first—may help us to become more sensitive to the ambivalences involved in the interaction between humans and technology, as well as to adapt technologies to the people that created the need for its existence, thus contributing to improve the quality of life of senior citizens.

"In this towering, comprehensive, and beautifully written book, Whalley weaves together many intimately linked threads regarding the human brain across the life course: risk and resilience; disease and symptoms; the gene and the environment; nature's evolution and mankind's intervention. All of these are placed within the context of the achievable aim of 'prevention.' Framed in this way, one feels progress in dementia research is secured." —Craig W. Ritchie, University of Edinburgh "For millennia, scholars have disagreed about the physical and psychological changes that often accompany aging: Are they inevitable or avoidable? Whalley takes a wide-ranging and inclusive approach to this question and provides answers that bridge sociology, biology, and psychology." — Peter V. Rabins, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine $50.00 / £34.50 paper 978-0-231-16383-5

The Thirteenth Step

Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking

Addiction in the Age of Brain Science

Beyond Victims and Villains

Markus Heilig

Alexandra Lutnick

"Markus Heilig sums up what he has learned during his twenty years as a physician and researcher in the treatment of alcohol and other addictive disorders.... An informative and compassionate chronicle." — Kirkus Reviews "Heilig outlines the newest treatments that should be offered to every patient suffering from addiction. He shows that treatments today can be based on recent scientific knowledge about what is happening in the brains of alcoholics and describes new treatments based on current knowledge about the disease. Heilig, a world-class expert, has done a tremendous service for patients and their families by writing this book." — Charles P. O'Brien, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania $29.95 / £19.95 cloth 978-0-231-17236-3 2015 320 pages

"The most comprehensive and sophisticated book on this topic on the market. Conventional depictions portray minors involved in prostitution monolithically and stereotypically, but Lutnick's book points to important complexities and variations at every stage—from entry to exit. Drawing on life-course theory, the book documents diversity in pathways into prostitution, in relations between minors and third parties, in work experiences, in access to needed services, and in state laws and enforcement patterns." —Ronald Weitzer, George Washington University Urging policymakers and practitioners to move beyond the simple framework of "rescuing" victims and "punishing" villains, this book calls for policies and programs that focus on the failure of social and cultural systems and respond better to the young people caught in this web. $35.00 / £24.00 paper 978-0-231-16921-9 $105.00 / £72.50 cloth 978-0-231-16920-2 2016 192 pages

Sex Crimes

Mental Health in the War on Terror

Transnational Problems and Global Perspectives

Culture, Science, and Statecraft Neil Krishan Aggarwal

Edited by Alissa R. Ackerman and Rich Furman "The editors successfully analyze the complexity of sex crimes beyond the emotive outrage that some, not other, sex crimes elicit in the public eye. Instead, they propose a transnational framework to look at such crimes, exploring legal approaches as well as policies of treatment, prevention, and support. The excellent and diverse presentation of case studies and contexts, from trafficking to war crimes, animal rights, and masculinity studies, helps highlight links between and disruptions in the way sex crimes are seen and dealt with in international and domestic law and policy." —Jelke Boesten, King's College London Introducing an array of tools for reducing the prevalence and consequences of sex crimes, leading scholars discuss topics ranging from sex trafficking and sex tourism to pornography, cyberstalking, and sexual abuse in the military and the Catholic church.

"The questions it poses are valuable, difficult, and without easy answers—for clinicians, military leaders, or even civilians, all of whom must live with a medical culture deeply marked by the war on terror." —Publishers Weekly "Should be required reading for psychiatrists and mental health professionals interested in the psychology of Islamist terrorism... It is an exemplar of the manner in which the lens of transcultural psychiatry can clarify our perspective." —Psychiatric Services "Aggarwal's argument is that science, religion, and moral experience are not just infiltrated with cultural meanings but come to create new cultural forms such as 'trauma,' forensic processes, and 'terrorism,' which in turn remake the world. An important achievement." —Arthur Kleinman, Harvard University $40.00 / £27.50 cloth 978-0-231-16664-5 2015 232 pages

Students at all levels will appreciate her blending of theory and ethical principles with reflections and insights from practitioners." —Lynne M. Healy, University of Connecticut School of Social Work This innovative textbook reconfigures generalist social work practice for the twenty-first century. Incorporating historical, ethical, and global perspectives, the volume presents new conceptualizations, definitions, and explanations for social work practice and principles in the areas of assessment, relationships, communication, best practices, intervention, and differential use of self. $60.00 / £41.50 cloth 978-0-231-15982-1

Handbook of Social Work Practice with Vulnerable and Resilient Populations Third Editon Edited by Alex Gitterman "This thoughtfully updated and expanded third edition of Gitterman's popular handbook is firmly rooted in the most important ideas in social work: our biopsychosocial perspective on human challenges, our reliance on multiple theories and a risk and resilience framework, our appreciation of the sociopolitical context of what we do, and our growing insistence on having an evidenceinformed basis for our programs and interventions. Readers will not only be better equipped to understand and empathize with the profound and complex challenges that clients face but also to act competently and compassionately to help facilitate change." —Kia J.

Supervision in Social Work

The Social Work Interview

Fifth Edition

Fifth Edition

Alfred Kadushin and Daniel Harkness

Alfred Kadushin and Goldie Kadushin

“The continuation of a classic! As always, this book is a joy to read, replete with numerous case examples to illustrate the major principles.” — Cynthia D. Bisman, Bryn Mawr College This fifth edition takes into account the sizable number of articles and books published on supervision since 2002. Changes in public health and social welfare policy have intensified concern about the social work supervision of licensed practitioners. Tax and spending limitations at all levels of government, combined with the unfolding effects of welfare reform and managed health care, have increasingly emphasized the need for efficient and accountable administration of health and social services in the private and public sectors. Kadushin and Harkness address issues raised by these developments, including budgetary allocation and staff management, the problems of worker burnout and safety, and the changing demographics and growing diversity of the supervising workforce. $90.00 / £63.00 cloth : 978-0-231-15176-4 2014 432 pages / 6 illus.

"This book is timeless! The authors have updated and enriched their newest edition and have added perceptive insights on crosscultural interviewing and new problem-solving interventions. They provide a dynamic examination of the helping process and present ideas and illustrations with eloquence and clarity. This seminal book is a gift to the profession." — Alex Gitterman, University of Connecticut School of Social Work "This fifth edition updates content, examples, and supporting research for welldeveloped principles. Practical dialogues representing a range of social work practice are a particular strength. The book also emphasizes culturally competent practice and guides social workers in difficult situations such as sharing bad news." — Ronald Rooney, University of Minnesota $50.00 / £35.00 paper 978-0-231-13581-8 $130.00 / £91.00 cloth 978-0-231-13580-1 2013 432 pages

Decision Cases for Advanced Social Work Practice

The Columbia Guide to Social Work Writing

Confronting Complexity

Edited by Warren Green and Barbara Levy Simon

Terry A. Wolfer, Lori D. Franklin, and Karen A. Gray "One of the great challenges in teaching social work practice is helping students move beyond tidy, textbook formulations to wrestle with the messiness of true practice. This book provides a range of honest, nuanced decision cases that can be used in classes to help students identify, articulate, and sort through the ethical, practice, and personal issues they will face in their careers. Each case focuses on a thematic area (e.g. client autonomy, supervisory conflict) with a depth and complexity that precludes easy answers. An immensely helpful tool for any educator seeking to sharpen students’ critical thinking and ability to ‘think like a social worker.’" —Anna Sheyett, University of South Carolina $36.00 / £25.00 paper 978-0-231-15985-2

"A valuable acquisition....Highly recommended." — Choice "An essential reference work for students, faculty and social work practitioners at all levels. Encompassing social work as both a discipline and a profession, its chapters provide expert advice on writing clearly, cogently, soundly and effectively in academic, practice and advocacy settings. Clinical practice, administration, policy, specific fields of practice, and international work all present specific challenges in explication that are thoughtfully and creatively addressed. A critical resource for journal editors and reviewers as well, this volume is a new classic." —Jeane W.

Children Living in Transition Helping Homeless and Foster Care

Addressing Racial Disproportionality and Disparities in Human Services

Children and Families

Multisystemic Approaches

Edited by Cheryl Zlotnick

Edited by Rowena Fong, Alan Dettlaff, Joyce James, and Carolyne Rodriguez

"A well-researched and valuable addition to the literature on homelessness." —PsycCritiques

"This is the most comprehensive book on the topic of racial disproportionality across both populations and systems." — Dorothy Roberts, University of Pennsylvania Law School

"An important contribution to the field of child welfare." —Journal of Children and Poverty "This unique volume highlights a major public health problem—the plight of vulnerable children in the foster care and homelessness systems. Within a social justice framework, Zlotnick and her co-authors give these children a voice to express the oppression, bias, racism and power differentials underlying their care.

The use of personal narratives by practitioners who have worked in various aspects of trauma therapy—with children, with disaster victims, with war veterans—is an extremely effective style of presentation. The situations of relationship, refugee, combat, historical-cultural, and collective trauma are all covered." —Katherine van Wormer, author of Human Behavior and the Social Environment, Micro Level $40.00 / £27.50 paper 978-0-231-13833-8 $120.00 / £83.00 cloth 978-0-231-13832-1 2007 352 pages / 16 illus. Empowering the Powerless: A Social Work Series

Melvin Delgado "[This book] is an important exposure of the impending ethical and practice issues confronted by gerontologists who must now make concerted efforts to train and support social workers who reflect the racial and ethnic composition of baby boomers of color." — Heung Bong Cha, President of the IAGG Because researchers often treat baby boomers of color as belonging to one group, quality data on the individual status of specific racial populations is lacking, leading to insufficiently designed programs, policies, and services. Using specific data, Melvin Delgado grounds an understanding of boomers’ financial, medical, and emotional needs within a historical, socioeconomic, cultural, and political context, resulting in tailored recommendations for meeting the challenges of African American, Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, and Native American older adults. $35.00 / £24.00 paper 978-0-231-16301-9 $105.00 / £72.50 cloth 978-0-231-16300-2 2014 296 pages

Nicholas M. Teich has written an insightful book that brings clarity and understanding to this subject.

Edited by Joan Berzoff "A rich, validating, and educative resource. It offers readers a comprehensive and holistic understanding of complex human challenges." —Journal of Teaching in Social Work "This exceptional work successfully questions the commonly held notion that psychodynamic theory and treatment is outdated, intended for the worried well, and not appropriate for ethnically diverse, indigent clients. Joan Berzoff and her contributors share a deep conviction in the efficacy of the contemporary psychodynamic approach, and each provides a detailed description of the engagement and treatment process, complete with candid countertransference reactions readers can readily identify." — Carol Tosone, New York University Silver School of Social Work and editor in chief, Clinical Social Work Journal $65.00 / £45.00 cloth 978-0-231-15108-5 2011 448 pages

Paul Gionfriddo

"A memoir that makes a strong argument: the public policy around mental illness is in shambles.... Gionfriddo's story is powerful, persuasive, and sad." —Publishers Weekly "Combining the perspectives of a loving father and a mental health policy expert, Gionfriddo describes the unintended results of a mental health system for children that places responsibility for responding to mental disorders on those afflicted by them. He makes an incontrovertible case for restructuring public policies and child mental health services to build upon the child and family and its strengths and needs as the foundation for continuous, respectful, flexible, and adaptive systems response." — Charles Bruner, executive director, Child and Family Policy Center $24.95 / £16.95 cloth 978-0-231-16828-1 2014 264 pages

"This groundbreaking book analyzes the most recent trends in market-oriented approaches to social development. Through a rigorous assessment of corporate social responsibility, social entrepreneurship, private sustainable development, and fair trade, Steven G. Anderson delivers a sound understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of these approaches." — Neil Gilbert, University of California, Berkeley "Anderson has done a masterful job in pulling together the fragmented literature on social innovation....Not only does he offer a set of clear-headed recommendations for harvesting thoughtful interventions but he is respectful toward all sides of the ongoing debate about what does and does not merit consideration as social innovation." — Paul C.

I was impressed then, and I am impressed now by his analysis of economic politics, the role of corporations in shaping public life, the media, and the globalization of our economic policies....[Roth and Susan J.

"An excellent theoretical framework for implementing policies and strategies to overcome the degrading conditions of injustice and oppression." — Readings: A Journal of Reviews and Commentary in Mental Health Clarifying the meaning, sources, and dynamics of injustice, exploitation, and oppression and certifying the place of the social worker in combating these conditions, Gil promotes social-change strategies rooted in the nonviolent philosophies of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King. He shares suggestions for transition policies intended to alleviate poverty, unemployment, and discrimination and examines modes of radical social work practice compatible with the UN “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” and President Roosevelt’s “Economic Bill of Rights.” In addition, Gil explores the ramifications of the Middle East’s “Arab Spring” and the Occupy Wall Street movement. $40.00 / £27.50 paper 978-0-231-16399-6 $120.00 / £83.00 cloth 978-0-231-16398-9 2013 192 pages Foundations of Social Work Knowledge Series

Elisabeth Reichert

Costa, and Nancy Pickering-Bernheim

Praise for the first edition: “A human rights compass—a preliminary guide for the translation of human rights for social workers.” —European Journal of Social Work Social Work and Human Rights has become a standard text highlighting the role of social work in protecting the rights of vulnerable populations. New material covers international events, such as the United Nations' Millennium Declaration (2000) and its effort to reduce the poverty and suffering of billions worldwide. The volume now emphasizes cultural rights and includes a probing lesson in cultural relativism. It turns a critical eye toward the failure in the United States to address social welfare issues and its reluctance to rectify policies favoring one group over another. $36.00 / £25.00 paper 978-0-231-14993-8 $110.00 / £76.00 cloth 978-0-231-14992-1 2011 280 pages

"As inequality has grown, economic development aimed at specific, low income neighborhoods is even more important than when the field first developed in the 1960s. This book provides a very comprehensive introduction to the varieties of economic development strategies, quite specific guidance on how to implement them, and good case studies to see this all in context." —Wim Wiewel, President, Portland State University "An important book that fills a gap in community development literature, demonstrating the juxtaposition of community development theories and practice in social work. More important, it traces our history in community development from its origins in civil rights, women's rights, labor organizing, and civic boosterism to community building, where we are today." —Diane Lupke, president, Diane Lupke and Associates $40.00 / £27.50 paper 978-0-231-13395-1 $120.00 / £83.00 cloth 978-0-231-13394-4 2014 584 pages/ 11 illus.

Narrating Social Work Through Autoethnography Choice Outstanding Academic Title Edited by Stanley L Witkin "Not only does this book have a set of fascinating well-referenced stories that show life as social and the social as central to life, it is also a unique, emotive, social work text which... is so engaging as to be hard to ignore." —Journal of Social Work This collection illustrates the value of autoethnography as an inquiry approach for social work practice. Covering such topics as international adoption, cross-dressing, divorce, cultural competence, life-threatening illness, and transformative change, contributors showcase the ambiguities, doubts, contradictions, insights, tensions, and epiphanies that accompany their experiences. $40.00 / £27.50 paper 978-0-231-15881-7 $120.00 / £83.00 cloth 978-0-231-15880-0 2014 384 pages

The Inner Life of the Dying Person

The Inner Life of the Dying Person

Second Edition

Allan Kellehear

Edited by Anne F. Fortune, William J. Reid, and Robert L. Miller "This edition continues with an emphasis on qualitative program evaluation and ends with some exemplary studies in strong practice domains in our field." — Deborah Gioia, University of Maryland, School of Social Work

Praise for the first edition: “A landmark book in the important debate about the direction social work research should take in the future. A balanced, fair, and scholarly but very readable analysis of the strengths and limitations of quantitative versus qualitative approaches.” —Katherine M. Wood, Rutgers University $65.00 / £45.00 paper 978-0-231-16139-8 $150.00 / £103.50 cloth 978-0-231-16138-1 2013 624 pages / 4 illus.

"I hope this innovative, thought-provoking, and at times brilliant work of public sociology will be read not only be end-of-life care professionals...but by anyone curious about what their own end, and the ends of those they love, might be like." —Sociology of Health and Illness "Rather than focusing on institutional dying, Kellehear draws from the personal accounts of people who are dying from illnesses such as cancer and dementia, as well those facing execution in prison, contemplating suicide, or suffering from the aftereffects of an accident. His project also takes him into the world of literature, poetry, autobiography, and internet blogs, where he sympathetically reviews people’s experiences of suffering, fear, courage, sadness, anger, hope, love, reminiscence, aloneness, and transformation. This is an exceptional text that sensitively draws the reader into the inner lives of dying people. It is not only groundbreaking but heartfelt and, perhaps strange to say, incredibly uplifting. I would like to have this book beside me as I near my own end of life." —Glennys Howarth, Plymouth University $35.00 / £24.00 paper 978-0-231-16785-7 $105.00 / £72.50 cloth 978-0-231-16784-0 2014 288 pages End of Life Care: A Series

Survivors of Slavery Modern-Day Slave Narratives Laura T. Murphy "An 'open condemnation' of modern slavery that builds powerfully by testimony." — Kirkus "As awareness of modern slavery explodes, the least heard but most important voices we need to hear belong to slavery survivors. It is a simple fact that if you have always lived in freedom the lived truth of slavery is unimaginable. For the slaves and ex-slaves this creates a deep gap, a sense that they will never be understood. Laura T. Murphy's superlative Survivors of Slavery bridges that gap and opens the door to understanding and healing. There are plenty of books to read if you want to understand modern slavery in your head, but if you want to understand the truth of slavery in your heart, read this book." —Kevin Bales, cofounder of Free the Slaves $32.00 / £22.00 paper 978-0-231-16423-8 $95.00 / £65.50 cloth 978-0-231-16422-1 2014 344 pages
