From the Back Cover:

/*HH05, Social Welfare: Politics and Public Policy, 4/e, Diana M> DiNitto(University of Texas at Austin), 06381-8, 560 pp., 7 x 9 1/4, 013-063819-6, paperbound, 1995, $??.00nk, December*/ This book is a "runaway best-seller" in this market. It introduces the reader to the major social welfare policies and programs in the U.S., including histories, trends, current problems and prospects. It focuses on policy issues and objectively describes the background and nature of the conflicts and controversies that exist, without taking a prescriptive attitude as to the "right" way to handle social problems.
