Now featuring a full color design, the best-selling text for policy analysis provides students with a comprehensive overview of social welfare policy in the United States while examining cutting-edge issues. Thoroughly updated and revised to reflect the impact of dramatic changes in social welfare policy, the Fifth Edition continues to focus on how the major sectors of social welfare policy-the voluntary, governmental, and corporate sectors-operate and co-exist (the "pluralist approach"), while also offering a clear, user-friendly framework for policy analysis. Among the cutting edge issues covered in this edition are: technology and social welfare policy, the fringe economy, religion and social policy, the transformation of public assistance policy into labor policy, and the relationship between tax policy and social welfare policy. The Fifth Edition has been redesigned to enhance its readability for students. The authors have streamlined much of the narrative and used full color charts and graphs to make the material even easier to comprehend.
