Overview

This text provides an overview of human behavior combining the traditional concern for individual development with an examination of social systems. The author examines human behavior in the context of the larger social conflicts associated with class, race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and ability status. After describing the critical perspective, which gives primary attention to the structural origins of private troubles, and presenting an overview of the systems approach, the book focuses on communities, families, groups, and organizations as social systems.
