New Book Honoring Social Work Editor in Chief
Congratulations to Edward Mullen, Editor in Chief of Oxford Bibliographies in Social Work (now celebrating five years), on the recent publication dedicated to his scholarly contributions to the field over the past 50 years: Social Work Practice to the Benefit of Our Clients: Scholarly Legacy of Professor Edward Joseph Mullen. Primarily focused on evidence-based policy and practice and social work practice research, this title is an edited volume with contributors from Europe and North America. It is published by Bozen-Bolzano University Press at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano. The following is a description of the book from the publisher's web site:
"This book follows the intellectual track and legacy of one of the most illustrious social work educators of our time, Edward J. Mullen, the Willma and Albert Musher Professor Emeritus of Columbia University and a fellow of the American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare. The collection of chapters is written by European and American scholars, social work leaders in their respective countries and beyond. Most of the contributions originate from a seminar organized by the Inter-Centre Network for Evaluation of Social Work Practice (Intsoceval), a network of social work scholars, and hosted in 2014 by the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano in Italy. This volume provides a remarkable and unique perspective on not only the professional trajectory of an eminent social worker but also the history of contemporary social work."
Edward Mullen is the Willma & Albert Musher Chair Professor Emeritus at Columbia University.
