Review

Here's what the reviewers are saying...

 

This new emphasis on the ubiquity of ‘management’ at all levels of social work practice…gives this text the widest possible applicability to the current and future social work profession, and to those who teach at all levels and concentrations of social work education, both in the academy and in fields of practice.” 

Nancy W. Veeder, Boston College

4.0 out of 5 stars Needed for class, will keep it for reference April 6 2013
By Robert P. Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I needed the book for class; found myself reading it and using it as a reference for other classes as well. It was a well-written text book. I purchased an e-version using it with Kindle on my IPad. Of all the different ereaders I used this semester (purchased all ebooks) Kindle was the most efficient. No delays or problems using highlighting or search functions. Overall a good experience.

1.0 out of 5 stars Textbook for social work managers in the 1930s Germany? April 13 2012
By Nancy Drew - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This was a required textbook in my graduate school (social work administration) career. I don't know if it's in the latest edition, but the one we had held up Adolf Hitler as a role model for social work managers. Being first generation German myself I was astounded. The school of social work withdrew it after I complained. I should check and see if they went back to it.

Over time it added to my analysis as to why these social work government bureaucracies are unethical and appear unable to be reformed which led me to speak up about the goings on behind the scenes, behind the bureaucratic walls of the government agency where I worked. I talked with one of my German aunts more recently. With her stories of the social workers in Nazi Germany I realize how come my German family did not jump up and down for joy about their social worker niece.

I was on the board of our National Association for Social Workers. I chaired the Nominations and Leadership committee. In the membership list I noticed a plethora of German names.

I witnessed my social work supervisor in action change computer data to make it look like cases were being investigated and closed in the time frame set by the legislature when they weren't. He was highly manipulative and unethical.

Textbooks like this will not get us efficiency, effectiveness and economy in our work. The professor of this class told us to get our managers to do what we want is by lying to them.

The professor with tenure was a lying, alcoholic, womanizer who drifted off to sleep during class. Our whole last quarter in school, the students taught the class (we were so advised by outgoing graduates on orientation day to do so).

When I find my book in storage I will add further to the review and cite the page number about Adolf.

When I saw this book on Amazon I wanted to write enough of a review to give folks a heads up to take a very critical thinking look at this book if it has been assigned to you as a graduate in the school of social work.
