Synopsis:

Social Welfare: Politics and Public Policy is the most comprehensive and easy-to-understand introduction to the social welfare system and social welfare policy.

 

This is a leading text in social welfare policy in departments of social work, political science, administration and government, and is also used in some departments of sociology. DiNitto focuses on the political aspects of policymaking; she describes the major social welfare programs, including public assistance, Social Security, disability, health insurance, and more. She also addresses racism, sexism, gay rights, and immigration in the context of social welfare policies and programs.

 

Additionally, it includes new and updated information on welfare reform (TANF), food stamps, managed care, disability, aging, the latest figures on poverty, and the latest information on job training and employment.

 

A full range of supplements includes an Instructor's Manual/Test Bank and a Computerized Test Bank. Student supplements include an Online Study Guide.
