Clearly, this book is biased towards the liberal/left perspective, but it does give a great summary of Social Welfare policy in the U.S. and is one textbook that I think all U.S.-based social workers should read. I also think all social workers should be active policy advocates, and should therefore be informed about the history and current state of social welfare policies and practices. That's my opinion and I'm stickin' to it.

This book did a good job of explaining the history of policies in the United States, including a wide variety of topics/social issues. It also did a good job of explaining how to analyse policies. Overall, decent book for understanding policy and for a course text.
Hope McCormick
A lot of tone and opinion, but still very informative.
