“I want to use Social Welfare Policy in a Changing World in my social policy courses as soon as possible! The authors do not artificially compartmentalize issues, such as housing instability, that are in practice deeply intertwined with issues like poverty, child welfare, and addiction. At the same time, they do not leave the reader in a sea of facts and figures. Instead, they offer vignettes and activities that demonstrate practical ways students can use their knowledge to affect change.”
“The vignettes that start each chapter make the topics come alive. I also liked that each chapter ended with advocacy opportunities. This text connects practice with policy very effectively.”
book is used by the university for the second policy class
A more current and up to date textbook was needed and after reviewing this book, we decided this a good fit to assist students with understanding social welfare policy in everyday life.
We wanted to try a new book this semester.
Excellent resource to include in syllabus under suggested text. Also, might use referenced information from the text.
