9780205437030: New History of Social Welfare, A (5th Edition)

This revision traces the evolution of the concept of social welfare and presents a sweeping view of the history of social welfare programs from prehistory to the present. The author takes a feminist perspective and integrates coverage of women's and minority issues into the development of our present social welfare system. Particular attention is paid to the issues of poverty and social and economic justice. A New History of Social welfare is a history of people involved in the social welfare system, not as wielders but as subjects, victims, recipients or clients. It considers the loss of history for disparaged groups: women, non-Caucasion people, laborers, etc, in an attempt to redress the omission or belittling of their contributions. The Fifth Edition integrates new details on racism from Afrocentric and Black women's perspectives into the stated societal values of America.

From the Back Cover:

This revision traces the conceptual evolution of social welfare and presents a sweeping view of the history of social welfare programs from prehistory to the present. The author takes a feminist perspective and integrates coverage of women's and minority issues into the development of our present social welfare system. Particular attention is paid to the issues of poverty and social and economic justice.

Highlights of the Fifth Edition:

  • Expanded coverage of African history and culture, along with major emphasis on the Afro centric paradigm (as explained by Dr. Jerome Schiele).
  • New information on Native American cultures, values and belief systems, strengthening the concept of diversity for readers.
  • New time lines at the beginning of each chapter help readers put historical events into context.
What the reviewers are saying. . .
I like this text very much; it has much to offer in the social welfare arena where many texts seem to be variations of the other. I especially like the ‘edge’ it has in the presentation of the material. The writing style is a compelling reason to seriously consider adopting this text.
Karen A. Ford, James Madison University

Among this books strengths are its’ consistent attention to women’s status, its global coverage (in a historical sense), the thoughtful questions at the end of the chapters and the length.
Beverly A. Stadum, St. Cloud State University
