Summary "This book provides a holistic vision for macro practice in the early 21st century. It argues very convincingly that effective macro practice requires a strategic vision, grounded in values, that integrates personal and community transformation. Burghardt provides a compass, as well as other tools, that macro practitioners can use to make significant social change. It promises to be a very useful resource for community and organizational practice in a number of fields."--Lorraine Gutierrez, University of Michigan.
This book develops a new paradigm suited to the quickly shifting dynamics of a globalized society more reliant on social networking, yet seeking common connection and community. By focusing on how practitioners can make meaningful, strategic choices regardless of their formal roles and responsibilities, Steve Burghardt breathes new life into key issues ranging from how to respond to both diversity and oppression, the vital use of the internet for organizing and the limits to "virtual trust," and co-leadership development.
This text is appropriate for upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level students enrolled in courses such as Macro Practice, Community Organizing, Leadership, and Management/Administration in social work and allied departments. --Book Jacket.
