About the Author:

Anne Westhues is a professor of social work at Wilfrid Laurier University. Her teaching and research are in the areas of social policy, planning, and evaluation.

Review:

"The text's high level of interesting and thought-provoking content was pleasantly surprising ...The text is comprehensive and undoubtedly will challenge students ... to think about substantive issues, and develop a level of critical thinking to be employed when scrutinizing social issues ... the fact that the text actually offers practical solutions to problematic social policy is a welcome addition ... The text is predominantly geared towards the social work profession yet it is easily applicable to any discipline." (Kim A. MacInnis, Bridgewater State College)

"An outstanding collection." (Wraychel Horne)
