What reviewers are saying about Human Behavior and the Larger Social Environment:
"I cannot remember the last time that I read a textbook that was as fascinating and held my attention throughout... I predict that social work students will love this book and teachers will find students to be enthusiastic and engaged in the topic."
—Deborah Valentine, Ph.D., Colorado State University
"The perspectives presented such as social constructionist, ecosystems, diversity, etc. will greatly facilitate students' learning and bridge the gap between theory, practice, and multiple dimensions of the macro environment. I think that students will find this text interesting and understandable and that it will help students to critically examine the multiple dimensions of human behavior."
—Marian S. Harris, Ph.D., University of Washington, Tacoma
