Joe M. Schriver's book is different from other Human Behavior and the Social Environment (HBSE) books in its use of a traditional/alternative paradigm conceptual framework to critically examine theories and content relevant to HBSE at all system levels (individual, family, group, organization, community, and global).It provides both student and instructor with HBSE content that is in synch with the world around us today - a global world, war and its impact on multiple systems, social and economic injustice, continuing racial stratification and oppression, and a continuing world environment that too often subjugates women and children. At the same time, it includes content through which students and instructors can find a positive and relevant place for social work in relation to todayrs"s realities: social work as a human rights profession, asset based rather than deficit based theories of aging, new understanding of Islam as both a religion and a culture, new attention to the transgender community, and new approaches to leadership in organizational, group, and community contexts (visionary, exemplary, servant leadership styles, for example). In addition, it opens avenues for conversations about some very controversial issues such gay/lesbian marriage, Critical Race Theory, Differential vulnerability vs Equality of Oppression theory, immigration/refugee status, whiteness/white privilege and white male identity development.
