American social policy today largely serves global corporate interests rather than the general public, according to William Roth. Based on incisive analyses of economic globalization, class, politics, and bureaucracy, The Assault on Social Policy argues that the perfection of the free market is a myth. Roth analyzes the rhetoric used to make poverty seem acceptable, shows how corporations affect the distribution of wealth and other resources, and considers the effect on disabled people, criminals, children, and health care. He concludes that increased transnational corporate power has created the need for large-scale systematic public policy changes.

Book Description:

Based on incisive analyses of economic globalization, class, politics, and bureaucracy, this book argues that the perfection of the free market is a myth.

From the Publisher:

"Roth has written an impressive book that should be read by every member of Congress, by all students of social policy, and everyone else who is concerned about the future of this country and our basic institutions. Roth's book should be dissected and debated, which is what he is asking us to do. At a time when wealthy corporate interests have more power than they have ever had, we must undertake a thorough examination of all aspects of our society, and struggle for ways to make our nation and our globe more democratic and more just. This book will be a valuable tool in that struggle."--Congressman Bernard Sanders (Ind.-Vt.) "This volume does a truly masterful job with a remarkable range of topics. It also widens the spectrum of dialogue about these issues to permit the discussion of perspectives that are usually neglected or ignored in most books on public policy. In this era when many people seem to have almost given up on the possibility of achieving fundamental social, economic, and political change, I believe that this book will be greeted as an inspiring source of hope."--Harlan Hahn, University of Southern California
