In the Shadow of the Poorhouse (ISBN10: 0465032109; ISBN13: 9780465032105)
ISBN13: 978-0465032105
ISBN10: 0465032109

Summary: In this history, Katz explores the roots of our ambivalence toward welfare and the welfare state, revealing the patterns which have recurred from era to era and which continue to frustrate reformers to this day. From the poorhouse era to the New Deal, from the War on Poverty to the War on Welfare, Katz provides the long perspective so often missing from the debates over "ending welfare as we know it." And this tenth anniversary edition contains an expanded
introduction and a new concluding chapter, bringing the story to the present and analyzing the politics that lie behind the welfare reform act of 1996. This controversial history of welfare in America argues that government must be the source of social progress.
