The major premise of this textbook is that social welfare policy pervades every aspect of social welfare practice from the obvious areas such as lobbying and administration to less obvious areas of counseling. Blau (social policy, Stony Brook U.) describes the factors that go into forming social welfare policy, presenting separate chapters on economics, politics, ideologies, and social movements. He then presents overviews of the major substantive areas of social welfare policy: income security, employment, housing, health, and food. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
