Overview

Incorporating distinctive international and national perspective

Providing students with in-depth coverage of families, groups, and communities, this text encourages readers to understand the nature of key macro institutions’ impact on human behaviors (and vice versa). The primary chapters include a section on knowledge and theories, followed by the impact on economic and social forces upon these topics. Students develop a solid knowledge of different macro HBSE theories including community, human conduct, inequality, and group theories.

While author Rudolph Alexander Jr. tightly follows CSWE outlines for macro HBSE courses throughout this text, he provides distinctive topical coverage including:

  • The impact of natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina
  • Human rights, ethnic cleansing, and genocide in international communities and their effect on human needs
  • Theoretical discussion of terrorism and terrorist activities

This text is appropriate for social work students taking a macro Human Behavior in the Social Environment course in the upper-level undergraduate or graduate level.
