The list author says: "Here is a list of books that pertain to primarily to social work and human rights. Because social work is interdisciplinary, readers from other disciplines in the health and helping professions broadly defined should find this list of interest. The placement of books is somewhat arbitrary, but I hope that it is helpful. I urge a looking at of all the titles for a thorough understanding of what is out there."
"This is an absolutely excellent book examining social work as a human rights profession. It also defines social work's commitment to social justice with human rights terms. This excellent work is coming out in a new edition in late 2010."
"This book relevant for social work, particularly advanced generalist practice, and also other helping professions like public health and nursing coming with a thorough Instructor's Manual with PowerPoints, lecture notes, further questions for discussion and more social action activities and examination questions.

"This excellent book is complete with exercises to advance human rights and social justice in this era of globalization, where the rift between the super rich and those in extreme poverty is every increasing."
"Readers may be particularly interested in the comparison I did with the US federal constitution and the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and also the 50 US state constitutions. I did not find almost all the economic, social, and cultural rights of the Universal Declaration, like rights to health care, security in old age, meaningful and gainful employment in the US Constitution."
