"This is some of the clearest and most straight forward text book writing that I have found...As a member of the Commission on Curriculum and Educational Innovation, I find that the material well addresses the new EPAS standards...In particular it has an excellent global perspective and engages students in critical thinking." -Stephen Anderson, New Mexico State University "I absolutely love the writing. Students will easily understand the content because it is relevant and engaging. The figures and charts are priceless. These provide a quick reference to active social welfare policies." -Sepora Fisher, Northwestern State University "I really like the figures listing significant legislation in chronological order. They are really helpful in providing a wide swath of information quickly." -Julia Rembert, University of Iowa "The writing style is excellent in that it is engaging and free of jargon. New concepts are clearly defined and aided by practical examples." -Saliwe Kawewe, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale "It is student-friendly as it is straight forward and easy to read. Most policy books are so hard to engage the students, yet this one makes it accessible." -Ruth Charles, Winona State UniversityReseña del editor:
