Understanding Social Problems, Policies, And Programs

In this fourth edition of a social work standard, Leon Ginsberg and Julie Miller-Cribbs offer an updated version of the text that has introduced thousands of social work students to the defining policies and procedures of the profession. Concise yet comprehensive, the volume surveys the span of social welfare history, explains the elements of social welfare policy education, and describes the impact of executive, legislative, and judicial initiatives on the delivery of social services.

Reviews

"The importance of this book is that there is nothing else quite like it—a text that attempts to lay and define the field of social policy."—David P. Fauri, Virginia Commonwealth Univers
