Underscoring the belief that approaches to social welfare have changed over the decades, while the needs to which the social work profession respond remain much the same, the authors offer a text that helps students develop a frame of reference to understand social welfare and an approach to address social issues which will serve them well in times of committment and retrenchment.

About the Author:

Joseph Heffernan taught policy and research courses at the University of Texas at Austin before retiring. He has significant macro-level experience with policy analysis, with particular emphasis on poverty and economic issues relating to social welfare.

Review:

"Chapter 3 is the best summary of ecological systems theory I have ever read...A major strength of the book is the chapter on rural social work..."

"Excellent...It is so interesting and easy to read that the student will read it and then be able to use it as a starting point for class discussion."
