The editors developed this important new text to help social workers understand and cope with the current maelstrom of change in social policy. Although policy makers and advocates on both sides have proposed many different approaches, there are some consistent themes, including devolution and the comingling of public and private funding. The articles in this collection were taken from the 1996 issues of the four primary NASW Press journals. As a group, these articles have been widely praised for the clarity with which they demonstrate the impact of policy on social work practice. Special Features * Strong emphasis on community issues * Analyses of current economic, political, and social contexts
