Allyn and Bacon, 1997 - Public welfare - 468 pages
This book offers a wide-ranging view of religious, economic and political forces from prehistory, the Clinton administration, and the actions of the 104th Congress. This revised study reviews the history of social welfare in the USA, including that relating to women and minority groups. This edition emphasizes particularly the political and economic aspects of a global-international society. It also features a up-to-date critical analysis of the far-right backlash against social welfare and social programmes, through the US 104th Congress.
