Diana M. DiNitto's Social Welfare: Politics and Public Policy (7th Edition), ISBN 9780205793846 presents students with a wealth of information regarding today's political features of policymaking and the foremost social welfare programs such as public assistance, Social Security, disability, and health insurance. Discussion also takes a look at policies that impact issues like racism, sexism, gay rights, and immigration. What sets this textbook apart from others is that instead of only presenting information on such policies and programs, this book actually delves into the conflict and controversies tied to them. The brains behind this book is that of Diana M. DiNitto. Holding a Ph.D. in government, she currently is Cullen Trust Centennial Professor of Alcohol Studies and Education and Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of Texas at Austin. It is here that she teaches courses in social welfare policy, alcohol and drug problems, research, and pedagogy. DiNitto has worn many hats dealing with social welfare over the years including word at a detoxification center, halfway house, and outpatient chemical dependency treatment program as well as serving on the boards of the Council and Social Work Education, the Association of Medical Education and Research on Substance Abuse, and the Texas Research Society on Alcoholism. She is also a seasoned writer with the coauthored book entitled Chemical Dependency: A Systems Approach, 4th ed. and Social Work: Issues and Opportunities in a Challenging Profession, 3rd ed. DiNitto does a phenomenal job of organizing the contents of Social Welfare: Politics and Public Policy (7th Edition), across 12 chapters. An introductory chapter is followed by Chapter 1 which dives right into 'Politics and the Policymaking Process. Chapter 2 discusses 'Analyzing, Implementing, and Evaluating Social Welfare Policy' followed by chapter 3 which investigates 'Politics and the History of Social Welfare Policy.' Chapter 4 asks the question 'Ending Poverty: Is It An Issue Anymore?' while chapter 5 presents 'Preventing Poverty: Social Insurance and Personal Responsibility' and chapter 6 takes a look at 'Disability Policy: From Public Assistance to Civil Rights.' 'Helping Needy Families: Ending Welfare as We Knew It' is the topic of choice in chapter 7 followed by 'Financing Health Care: Can All Americans Be Insured?' in chapter 8 and 'Preventing Poverty Through Education and Employment' covered in chapter 9. Chapter 10 tackles 'Providing Social Services: Help for Children, Older Americans, and Individuals with Mental and Substance Use Disorders' followed by chapter 11 examines 'The Challenges of a Diverse Society: Social Policy, Gender, and Sexual Orientation.' Finally this book is concluded with chapter 12 which investigates 'The Challenges of a Diverse Society: Race, Ethnicity, and Immigration.'
