Written by renowned author Howard Jacob Karger and David Stoesz, American Social Welfare Policy (6th Edition) – ISBN 9780205627080 explores social welfare in America in relation to recent issues and problems, from the 2008 presidential election to the housing bust and the economy. The role of American social welfare policy, the voluntary and for-profit social sectors, and the government sector are discussed in full detail. The authors explain the American welfare state, policy research, how religions affect social welfare policies, discrimination in American society, poverty in America, and the voluntary sector today. Privatization and human service corporations, the making of governmental policy, tax policy and income distribution, social insurance programs, public assistance programs, and the American health care system are also covered. American Social Welfare Policy (6th Edition) is an excellent resource for researchers interested in mental health and substance abuse policies, criminal justice, child welfare policy, housing policies, the politics of food policy and rural life, and the American welfare state in international perspective. Already on its 6th edition, this textbook continues to be one of the most up-to-date, thanks to the revisions of Karger and Stoesz. Students are forced to use critical thinking skills to answer the compelling discussion questions at the end of each chapter. There are also notes and conclusions to aid them in reviewing for exams. Known for its respectful and liberal point of view, this textbook facilitates responsible classroom discussions and discourages students from developing biases on certain topics such as feminism, poverty, sexual-orientation, and religion.
