What Reviewers Are Saying

 

“The text is well written, thoroughly documented and is understandable.”

                                          –Patricia K. Cianciolo, Northern Michigan University

 

“I like the way the text is organized (analytical model first, followed by material related to major social welfare policies and themes). I compliment the authors on their consistent use of their analytical model to organize the chapters in Part II. I think identifying and using the model introduced in earlier chapters to discuss current themes in Part III is a very focused, effective strategy. My students tell me that they find the text very readable and interesting.”    

–Patrick Dattalo, Virginia Commonwealth University

 

“The approach–teach analysis, then provide for the learning of content (issues) through the analysis of them. Brilliant.”

–Sarah Cearley, University of Arkansas, Little Rock
