Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Helps undergraduate and graduate social work students analyze and evaluate social welfare policies that affect their work and the lives of their clients. Outlines a policy-based model of the social work profession which recognizes the social welfare system as a major factor, then delineates historical, political, social, and economic facets of the policy context, combining them in a policy analysis framework. Later material applies this framework to representative policies in aging, mental health, public welfare, and child welfare. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
