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.

Particular attention is paid to the issues of poverty and social and economic justice.

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.
