This book puts the issue of race at the center of social policy and examines the conceptual, historical and practical implications that various social policies have had on people of color (defined broadly as African Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, and Asian Americans). More importantly, it shows how people of color have responded and resisted to these policies from a strengths-based approach, rather than presenting them as passive victims as many other current texts do.It will be particularly appealing to social workers whose main thrust is not only to help those who have been underserved, but to help enhance policies that might be perpetuating the problem.
