Primarily intended for reference, this book is not detailed enough for advanced study in any field of social work.
The book is divided into two parts: Part I contains seventy-nine signed articles by authorities on civil rights, psychiatric social work and camping. Each article is a summary of the steps and general trends now in force in this aspect of social living. Part II is a directory of 546 agencies in social work related to the subject matter of part I, exclusive of profit and propagandistic groups. These are organized under four sections: International Agencies, Governmental and Voluntary National Agencies, and Canadian Agencies. In varying degrees of completeness are given the number of members, the purpose and activities and any publications issued. Topics such as medical care plans, religion and education which are closely related to social work are included.
