Thoroughly updated and revised to reflect the impact of dramatic changes in social welfare policy, the Research Navigator 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.

(Note: frontmatter numbered as RN-1, etc, so it does not affect the pagination of the original 5/e, therefore no need to change syllabi if currently using the 5/e of Karger).New! "Research Activities" at the end of each chapter in frontmatter to help students think critically about social welfare and conduct additional research in areas of interest. New! An access code for Research Navigator is now included on the inside front cover. (Research Navigator (TM) is the easiest way for students to start a research assignment or research paper.
