Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

This latest edition of Case Critical applies decolonized, critical analysis to highlight what is often hidden from view for most Canadians: the personal trauma and communal devastation inflicted on Indigenous people by past and present colonialism and the ways in which neoliberal tax cuts, austerity, and privatization create more inequality, homelessness, and despair among both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

The authors argue that social service providers should become social activists, working in solidarity with progressive grassroots social movements in order to de-legitimatize colonial and neoliberal policies.

From The Publisher*The latest edition of the groundbreaking Canadian social work classic
Review Quote*

Case Critical successfully weaves Indigenous and settler scholars? perspectives into a braid that clearly and remarkably challenges ongoing oppressions in Canada.
