Description

This text examines why the US welfare state does less than other Western welfare states to help people in need. Combining an account of recent research on how political institutions, class politics, and racial divisions shape public policy, with a close analysis of four periods of welfare state expansion and contraction, the author shows how deeply-rooted structural, institutional, and organizational factors limit the possibilities for change, and suggests what social reformers might do about it.show more
