This book argues the necessity for social professionals working locally to equip themselves with knowledge of global mechanisms and cross-cultural issues. Local level examples include the increase in victims of trafficking or the effects of HIV/AIDS on some immigrant groups. International examples include the risk to children moving across borders, the growth of international pedophile networks, and the proliferation of terrorism.
