The essays in this volume explore the moral foundations and the political prospects of the welfare state in the United States. Among the questions addressed are the following: Has public support for the welfare state faded? Can a democratic state provide welfare without producing dependency on welfare? Is a capitalist (or socialist) economy consistent with the preservation of equal liberty and equal opportunity for all citizens? Why and in what ways does the welfare state discriminate against women? Can we justify limiting immigration for the sake of safeguarding the welfare of Americans? How can elementary and secondary education be distributed consistently with democratic values? The volume confronts powerful criticisms that have been leveled against the welfare state by conservatives, liberals, and radicals and suggests reforms in welfare state programs that might meet these criticisms.


The contributors are Joseph H. Carens, Jon Elster, Robert K. Fullinwider, Amy Gutmann, Jennifer L. Hochschild, Stanley Kelley, Jr., Richard Krouse, Michael McPherson, J. Donald Moon, Carole Pateman, Dennis Thompson, and Michael Walzer.

From Library Journal:

These essays explore the moral foundations and political prospects of the welfare state in America. Key questions addressed are: Has public support for the welfare state faded? Can long-term dependency on welfare be avoided? Does the welfare state discriminate against women? Should immigration be limited to safeguard the welfare of Americans? What responsibility does the state have to provide elementary and secondary education equally to all? Reforms in current government welfare programs are proposed to meet trenchant criticisms of radicals, liberals, and conservatives. These papers elucidate the deeper meanings and broader implications of the welfare state. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries. Harry Frumerman, formerly with Hunter Coll . , CUNY
