BeschreibungFederal welfare policy has been a political and cultural preoccupation in the United States for nearly seven decades.
Pressestimmen"The debate over welfare suffers from lack of historical perspective. Now come Mink and Solinger to transform our understanding with a clearly articulated, carefully organized, and judiciously selected collection of key sources and illustrative documents that illuminates the past and present of aid to poor women and their children. Essential for classroom use, this book also belongs on the desks of policy makers and activists alike." --Eileen Boris, Hull Professor of Women's Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara "A stirringly dramatic narrative of welfare policy history. Through the documents they select, Mink and Solinger bring to life an immensely important human drama, and they do so in a way that paves a path to a higher awareness of the deeply ingrained biases of gender, race, and class that operate in welfare policy." --Social Service Review
