The Encyclopedia of Macro Social Work

The Encyclopedia of Macro Social Work (EOMSW) updates and expands upon all of the macro content in the Encyclopedia of Social Work to create a multi-volume work unlike any other. The EOMSW will include nearly 200 long-form overview articles that address macro practice methods (organizations, community, policy) as well as macro theories, concepts, ideologies, problems, and contexts relating to macro social work. The Encyclopedia will also include an introduction to the field of macro practice and various topical guides for students and researchers. This inaugural print edition is destined to become an essential resource for the field: there is simply no similar work available that takes this sort of wide-ranging, expansive view of all that macro practice encompasses.
