The reluctant welfare state
engaging history to advance social work practice in contemporary society

Brooks Cole, , 2008
ISBN 978-0534365516

This sixth edition of a classic text on the history of social work in the context of the United States of America is packed with information. About 600 pages cover a timespan from the early years of the USA (`the wilderness`) up to just before the election of Barack Obama.
It covers more social policy ground than social work, e.g. providing plenty of information on Roosevelt, Reagan and Bush, and limited information on Mary Richmond or Bertha Reynolds.
