A New History of Social Welfare
Allyn and Bacon, 1997 - 468 pagine
This revision traces the evolution of the concept of social welfare and presents a sweeping view of the history of social welfare programs from prehistory through the 1990s. The author takes a feminist perspective and integrates coverage of women's and minority issues into the development of our present social welfare system. Particular attention is paid to the issues of poverty and social and economic justice.
This edition includes coverage of the new welfare reform act or TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families), including the political and economic implications for the poor, particularly women and children. In addition, the new edition deals more fully with global economic issues affecting social welfare in all countries. Chapter 13 now includes more information on transnational corporations and the global economy. Chapter 13 also includes new coverage of managed health care and case management.
