Summary

Controversial Issues in Social Policy is an edited collection of contemporary social policy debates argued between some of the foremost thinkers in the field of social work as well as prominent authors in other fields. Its 16 debate topics were selected to cover a wide range of professional interests in the field of social policy and are divided into three parts:

  • Part I: Social Policy and the American Welfare State
  • Part II: The Culture Wars: Discrimination, Stigma and Social Policy
  • Part III: Social Work and Social Service Delivery Issues

It is a great text for anyone interested in social welfare policy, public policy and contemporary issues at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. It stresses the importance of critical and independent thought in the educational process.
