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.
