What reviewers are saying about the Sixth Edition. . .

The book’s treatment of policy issues is far more extensive than is typical of intro textbooks. . . . Consistent with this is its coverage of the social welfare system as it currently exists, including the major cornerstone programs (TANF, WIC, Food Stamps, SSI, etc.) that any well-informed worker needs to know about to serve clients well.
Pamela Kiser, Elon University
