Inhaltsangabe: The Sixth Edition of Dimensions of Social Welfare Policy presents readers with a comprehensive theoretical and conceptual framework for analyzing a wide range of social welfare policies. Dimensions of Social Welfare Policy illustrates theoretical points by offering examples from a cross-section of program areas including income maintenance, child welfare, model cities, day care, community action, and mental health. The authors show how social theories and individual versus collective value orientations influence policies. The Sixth Edition continues to include a broad overview of the most recent policy trends in the advanced welfare states related to eligibility, finance, delivery, and benefit designs. A new chapter broadens the scope of this book by applying the social policy framework to international policy trends in the advanced welfare states, comparing them to developments in the United States.
Dimensions in Social Welfare Policy provides students with the most comprehensive and widely-used theoretical and conceptual framework for analyzing the design of a wide range of social welfare policies.
Highlights of the Sixth Edition
“As an instructor, I find this text soundly organized and understandable. The text covers content in both depth and breadth and the content is appropriate for graduate level education. I particularly like the way the authors encourage critical thinking through the presentation of information without attempting to provide simplistic answers or solutions to social policy questions and problems.”
Myrna D. Bocage, Simmons College
“The conceptual framework gives students an organized, systematic approach to examining social welfare policies in-depth. Using this framework fosters students' ability to engage in conceptual and analytical thinking, including consideration of underlying values and assumptions regarding policy choices. Additionally, the framework provides tools that will be useful over time; that is, students will be able to use the four dimensions and related concepts throughout their careers to analyze modified or new policies.”
Jan L. Hagan, University of Albany
