In Amoral Communities, Mila Dragojević examines how conditions conducive to atrocities against civilians are created during wartime in some communities. She identifies the exclusion of moderates and the production of borders as the main processes. In these places, political and ethnic identities become linked and targeted violence against civilians becomes both tolerated and justified by the respective authorities as a necessary sacrifice for a greater political goal. Dragojević augments the literature on genocide and civil wars by demonstrating how violence can be used as a political strategy, and how communities, as well as individuals, remember episodes of violence against civilians. The communities on which she focuses are Croatia in the 1990s and Uganda and Guatemala in the 1980s. In each case Dragojević considers how people who have lived peacefully as neighbors for many years are suddenly transformed into enemies, yet intracommunal violence is not ubiquitous throughout the conflict zone; rather, it is specific to particular regions or villages within those zones. Reporting on the varying wartime experiences of individuals, she adds depth, emotion, and objectivity to the historical and socioeconomic conditions that shaped each conflict. Furthermore, as Amoral Communities describes, the exclusion of moderates and the production of borders limit individuals' freedom to express their views, work to prevent the possible defection of members of an in-group, and facilitate identification of individuals who are purportedly a threat. Even before mass killings begin, Dragojević finds, these and similar changes will have transformed particular villages or regions into amoral communities, places where the definition of crime changes and violence is justified as a form of self-defense by perpetrators.

The African Novel and the Modernist Tradition challenges, from a literary perspective, the general thinking that what is European and American is uniquely different from what is African. The book examines key African novels side by side with British and American modernist novels. Through this comparative study, it demonstrates the manner in which several African novelists have taken full advantage of the experimentation that modernism offers to tackle their own 'crisis of culture'. This study shows that African novelists clearly understand what modernism is and employ to advantage its consciousness of disorder, despair, and anarchy. The African Novel and the Modernist Tradition is thus able to conclude that the African novel is part of a larger fictional universe.

In what may well have been the largest popular protest in this country of the last twenty years, more than forty thousand demonstrators in Seattle effectively shut down a World Trade Organization (WTO) conference late last year. Against the backdrop of this historic event, William K. Tabb issues a comprehensive examination of the world capitalist system at the start of the twenty-first century disputing those who see globalization as the steamroller against which the most powerful nations are helpless. It is in fact the most powerful states that have created globalization. The Amoral Elephant examines the implications of globalization, draws parallels to earlier stages of capitalist development to demonstrate the social burdens arising from the exploding financial markets. Tabb describes how international institutions, most importantly the International Monetary Fund and the WTO have focused on neoliberal goals to erode the welfare state and shift wealth from the poor to the rich. Tabb's reasoning is that if we better understand the world, we will be better prepared to engage in the struggle for progressive social change.

This readable and practical text applies the generalist practice model to social work with larger systems including organizations, neighborhoods, and communities, and emphasizes how macro, micro, and mezzo skills are inter-linked and how they are used every day practice. The authors clearly define the step-by-step processes for contemplating and initializing macro change in organizations and communities, while integrating issues such as values and ethics, populations-at-risk, social and economic justice, and diverse perspectives. The examples, practical applications, highlights, pictures, and diagrams make the material engaging and relevant. Significant issues pertinent to macro practice, including working with the media and courts, fundraising, grant writing, and resolving ethical dilemmas, are also addressed.

This comprehensive book, loaded with case studies, offers a solid foundation for assessment of human behavior in macro settings. Kirst-Ashman offers the reader practical and concrete ways of thinking about how macro systems (or task groups, communities and organizations) affect human behavior, and how these influences have implications for macro social work practice. The theme of empowerment, or building on the strengths of communities, organizations, and groups to promote change, lies at the heart of the profession's goals and central philosophies.
