  • Expanded sections cover the historical development of institutions and the de-institutionalization movement.

What the reviewers are saying...

 

 “I really enjoy Social Welfare: A History of the American Response to Need and find that each time I read it in order to prepare for class, I pick up a few new interesting facts.”

                                                                                        Michael Wolf-Branigin, George Mason University

 

 “I think [Social Welfare] is still the best overall text for BSW or MSW students in courses that emphasize the history of social welfare.  It is well-organized, researched and written.  It has a clear theme that is maintained throughout the book.  It reflects the disciplinary strengths of the authors (economics and history) and it uses primary source documents effectively.”              Michael Reisch, University of Michigan
