Social Contract Revisited: Aims and Outcomes of President Reagan's Social Welfare Policy by D. Lee Bawden

Examines the early record of the Reagan administration in its efforts to "curb the growth" of social welfare spending and generally reduce the role of the federal government in favor of much greater state and local government and private sector involvement in meeting social welfare needs. Also evaluates Reagan's promise to preserve a reliable safety net. Of particular interest is the essay by "Nathan Glazer" addressing the significance of President Reagan's social welfare policies from a historical perspective.
