Former and current faculty members comment on the 100-year history of the school and the practice of professional social work. Six sections (most of whose 17 essays were written specifically for the school's centennial celebration, held in June 1998) provide a historical overview and cover methods of practice, fields of practice, doctoral education, the school and New York City, and the future of the school.
