“Many UN experts and human rights activists worldwide warmly welcome the publication of the Second Edition of Dr. Wronka’s Human Rights and Social Justice, an inspiring if not brilliant work . . . Written for the educated layperson, it builds on the momentum it began in the original edition, excellently integrating both theory and practice, in this case, for the helping and health professions, but in ways that could also have implications for other traditional academic disciplines and ‘newer’ ones like peace and environmental studies, world citizenship, and global distributive justice.”
“Human Rights and Social Justice is a compendium of ideas, reflections, strategies, and insights—a great resource for learners and enjoyable read for the curious.”
“Joseph Wronka is truly a social work scholar and visionary of integrating human rights in the helping and health professions. His transdisciplinary approach offers a tangible model to realizing rights for all people in all places.”
“A must-read for anyone in the helping professions who is interested in human rights and social justice.”
“The background and history of human rights is superior to other textbooks that I have seen in this area.”
This book is a must for those who are working to make human rights an overarching way of life around the world.
For what this class required, this was a great introductory text. I appreciated the rich history and practical examples of where human right have been successfully (attempted) to be implemented. I appreciated the diversity of examples as well - across the world.
