Social welfare policy in the United States has gone from controversy in the 1930s, to consensus at mid-century, and back to controversy and confusion in the late twentieth century. In America's Welfare State, Edward Berkowitz offers a concise and informative historical overview of this costly and often frustrating area of domestic policy.

Editorial Reviews

Berkowitz has gone behind the written statute and the official press release to find out who believed what and who did what to effect changes in the process and substantive aspects of welfare statism. This book is a worthy addition to the literature.
