Perhaps best effective as supplemental or preliminary reading prior to a student's first contact with those who need services or the indigent, this collection of stories and commentaries covers a range of aspects of social work, covering an introduction to the economic and political environment of the narratives and to the legislative process, temporary assistance to needy families, public housing and homelessness, unemployment insurance, Supplemental Security Income, food stamps, and Medicaid. The concluding chapter describes helping clients hope with hard times, including the ambivalence in America toward those in need. The authors include a table of cases.
