From the Publisher
"This wonderfully lucid, well developed volume should perhaps have been called Suggested Praxis for the Poor, since, instead of describing the current state of welfare, the author argues for a revamped praxis that would rescue our failing programs….Highly recommended."
"A significant achievement. This is a passionate critique that embodies the very politically-engaged scholarship for which it calls."
-Nancy Campbell,Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
"Praxis for the Poor offers a thought-provoking, even moving, challenge to progressive intellectuals. Engagingly written, it shines a bright light on issues of research, advocacy, and the doleful character of the country's system of social welfare."
-Ira Katznelson,Columbia University
"Schram poses an important challenge for those who would like to restore to political science its sometime concern with power and inequality."
-American Politics Book Review,
" I recommend reading this book, and I applaud Schram's many accomplishments while I share his long-term commitments."
-American Journal of Sociology,
