Abstract:

"Doing Good, Departing from Evil: Research Findings in the Twenty-First Century emphasizes that goodness must be actively enacted, not abstractly discussed, that evil is present and must be fought, and that in-depth research into problems provides wisdom to proceed with that battle in the new century. Eleven scholars investigate problematic topics and offer potential guidance about racism, propaganda, marital tensions, educational inequities, college dropouts, elders' depression, neglect of the disabled, and even peacemaking between faith-based and secular social work agencies as well as Israelis and Palestinians. This collection offers no easy answers to complex problems, but points the way to potentially positive modes of mending the world, and invites readers to share in this challenging task."--Jacket.
