Promotional Information

Strengthened by the use of case studies, the book presents five perspectives on understanding both individual and group oppression: historical, ecological, critical, ethical, and feminist. The second edition places an increased emphasis on "how-to" skills and introduces more material on the narrative and constructivist approach to empowerment. The most innovative addition is a new chapter designed to identify world-wide issues of oppression.
