Summary

Social workers and family therapists need a guide that updates them on the very latest developments in American social policy, including the new Welfare law and new concepts of civic community and privatization. This updated edition does that and more. This book has set the standard for social policy books that provide an analytical focus. The authors, in writing the new edition, have incorporated data and analysis on the newest social welfare legislation and trends into "dimensions" or decision-making alternatives. Market: Social workers, family therapists, and those concerned with the state of our welfare system.
