A feisty guide for activists and community, welfare and social workers.
Already I have found myself quoting Anne Bishop's wisdom: her simple advice is compelling. Right now in Australia she has the power to lead us as we struggle with questions of guilt, responsibility and patterns of oppression which are 'larger than ourselves'. ..Rev. Tim Costello, President, Baptist Union of Australia..Becoming an Ally is must reading for anyone concerned with understanding and challenging the dynamics, forms, and sources of oppression-whether it is their own oppression, that of others, or both...Bob Mullaly is Head of Social Work at Victoria University, Melbourne ..Where does oppression come from? Has it always been with us, just 'human nature'? What can we do to change it? What does individual healing have to do with the struggles for social justice? What does social justice have to do with individual healing? Why do members of the same oppressed group fight each other, sometimes more viciously than their oppressor? Why do some who experience oppression develop a life-long commitment to fighting oppression, while others turn around and oppress others? ..Anne Bishop draws on her many years experience in community work to write this feisty and bestselling guide for activists, community workers and welfare workers.
