Overview

"At last, a clear and thoughtful exploration of almost uncharted territory—the extensive American system of tax subsidies for social benefits, targeted primarily on the well-to-do. Christopher Howard's thoroughly researched book will vastly increase our understanding of a significant and virtually unknown part of American policymaking."—Paul Pierson, Harvard University

"[The Hidden Welfare State] will make students of social policy rethink many of their key assumptions about how social policies are adopted and how they expand. It is essential reading for students of American social policy."—Margaret Weir, Brookings Institution

Editorial Reviews

The Wall Street Journal
Mr. Howard's book is not meant for the reader with a casual interest in his subject. But. . . it stimulates all sorts of radical thoughts—some of them perhaps more radical than the author intended.
