Trattner provides in-depth examination of developments in child welfare, public health, and the evolution of social work as a profession, showing how all these changes affected the treatment of the poor and needy in America. He explores the impact of public policies on social workers and other helping professions -- all against the backdrop of social and intellectual trends in American history. "From Poor Law to Welfare State" directly addresses racism and sexism and pays special attention to the worsening problems of child abuse, neglect, and homelessness. Topics new to this sixth edition include:
Written for students in social work and other human service professions, "From Poor Law to Welfare State: A History of Social Welfare in America" is also an essential resource for historians, political scientists, sociologists, and policymakers.
