Offering a new values perspective, Elizabeth Segal's SOCIAL WELFARE POLICY AND SOCIAL PROGRAMS takes the student beyond identifying, describing, and analyzing social welfare policies. Segal demonstrates how the myriad values of diverse groups in America have influenced current policies, and helps students recognize that analysis takes place through the lens of these often opposing values. The dual themes of critical thinking and critical evaluation provide the framework of the book, and Segal's unique attention to international perspectives on values around social welfare policies and social programs heightens students' awareness of the global implications of social work around the world.

Review:

"I will absolutely adopt. This new book enhances the one I currently use. I am glad we will see the international aspect. Critical thinking is also key in the process of policy analysis. I am looking forward to using the text."

"I would describe this manuscript to a colleague as the most thorough coverage of important areas related to policy on the market today. Further, the organization of the book moving from broad concepts to skills to specific areas moves students from looking at provisions of individual policies to an understanding of the interlocking relationship between policies. The method of presentation requires students to think critically about important policy issues. After working with the material as it is presented in this text, I doubt any students will ask why they need to study policy or fail to understand that policy drives practice and determines what social workers can offer their clients.'"
