Summary

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.
