Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0871143011, Paperback)

Work, Welfare and Politics sheds much needed light on the ideology and impacts of the 1996 welfare reform legislation. Led by Frances Fox Piven, activist, professor and author from City University of New York, notable scholars, advocates and policymakers explore the timely issues facing legislators in 2002. From politics and social control to families and childcare, this volume, which is a collection of papers originally presented at a 2000 conference, is comprehensive in scope and offers concrete suggestions for authentic welfare reform.
