Now featuring a full color design, the best-selling text for policy analysis provides students with a comprehensive overview of social welfare policy in the United States while examining cutting-edge issues. Thoroughly updated and revised to reflect the impact of dramatic changes in social welfare policy, the Research Navigator Fifth Edition continues to focus on how the major sectors of social welfare policy--the voluntary, governmental, and corporate sectors--operate and co-exist (the "pluralist approach"), while also offering a clear, user-friendly framework for policy analysis. *New! The Research Navigator edition includes 48 pages of additional material in the frontmatter, featuring a chapter-by-chapter update on various policy issues, changes in Congress and legislation since publication of the 5/e in July 2005. (Note: frontmatter numbered as RN-1, etc, so it does not affect the pagination of the original 5/e, therefore no need to change syllabi if currently using the 5/e of Karger).*New! "Research Activities" at the end of each chapter in frontmatter to help students think critically about social welfare and conduct additional research in areas of interest. *New!An access code for Research Navigator is now included on the inside front cover. (Research Navigator is the easiest way for students to start a research assignment or research paper. Complete with extensive help on the research process and four exclusive databases of credible and reliable source material including the EBSCO Academic Journal and Abstract Database, New York TimesSearch by Subject Archive, "Best of the Web" Link Library, and Financial TimesArticle Archive and Company Financials, Research Navigator helps students quickly and efficiently make the most of their research time.)
