Reviewer responses
As an instructor, I find this text soundly organized and understandable. The text covers content in both depth and breadth and the content is appropriate for graduate level education. I particularly like the way the authors encourage critical thinking through the presentation of information without attempting to provide simplistic answers or solutions to social policy questions and problems.
Myrna D. Bocage, Simmons College

The conceptual framework gives students an organized, systematic approach to examining social welfare policies in-depth. Using this framework fosters students' ability to engage in conceptual and analytical thinking, including consideration of underlying values and assumptions regarding policy choices. Additionally, the framework provides tools that will be useful over time; that is, students will be able to use the four dimensions and related concepts throughout their careers to analyze modified or new policies.
Jan L. Hagan, University of Albany
