Promoting innovation and change in organizations and communities : a planning manual by Jack Rothman( Book )

11 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To effectively promote change in organizations and communities, specific strategies or action guidelines and some tactical steps for effectively carrying out these strategies are offered for people who work in human service agencies. The book is useful to both practitioners in the field and upper-division graduate students. The action guidelines, derived from basic social science research findings, are general principles that may be used by a variety of people concerned with organizational and community change. Four principles of intervention, or action guidelines, are considered: promoting an innovative service or program, changing the goals of an organization, increasing participation in organizations and groups, and increasing effectiveness in role performance. Each chapter presents and analyzes one of the four action guidelines. The general format of the four guideline chapters is similar, containing an introduction to the practice problem, action principles derived from research on the problem, illustrations of implementation, quantitative findings from practitioner logs, practitioners' views of problems and prospects, and getting started--thoughts for initiating action and a log for listing first steps. A final chapter draws conclusions and suggests further steps. (Author/JR)

Promoting social justice in the multigroup society; a casebook for group relations practitioners by Jack Rothman( Book )

7 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume represents a modest effort to meet the critical need for teaching materials of all sorts relating to work with racial and ethnic groups, both in social work and other human service professions. The approach taken here is to produce a range of source materials which illustrate and illuminate aspects of group relations practice. Such a source book, composed of cases, documents, episodes of practice, agency reports, etc., is intended to highlight issues and techniques and to provoke systematic analysis relative to this area of practice. Its purpose is both to teach and to stimulate further conceptualization concerning this very important field of work. The framework concerning group relations practice which is reflected in the book is broad and eclectic. The field is defined in terms of a series of functions designated Group Rights, Group Solidarity and Power, Intergroup Attitudes and Relationships, and Group Welfare. The term "group relations" is used to describe intervention in the ethnic and racial field and in other group relations areas. Material is included on a wide range of American groups: American Indians, blacks, Chicanos, Puerto Ricans, Catholics, Jews, Protestants, whites in the suburbs, blue-collar ethnic nationalities, and women.

Hollywood in wide angle : how directors view filmmaking by Jack Rothman( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Because directors have a comprehensive view of the filmmaking industry, they have often been interviewed for their insights on movie making. Until Hollywood in Wide Angle, however, their responses have never been so revealing." "More than thirty film directors were interviewed by Jack Rothman, a social scientist who guaranteed their responses would remain anonymous. Rothman analyzes the uncensored comments from these ideal informants to give readers an inside look into the process of filmmaking, as well as an understanding of the wider sociological forces that both limit and facilitate such endeavors. The result is an intimate and candid portrait of work within the film industry, both on and off the set." "Hollywood in Wide Angle will be useful not only to students but also to new and aspiring directors and other industry professionals. Indeed, this book will intrigue anyone truly interested in both movies and the complex industry behind them."--Jacket
