Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Describing the uneasy evolution of America's welfare programs, Berkowitz explains how Social Security became popular, why it almost went bankrupt, and why its long-term prospects for solvency remain uncertain. He also explores the question of national health insurance, noting that the U.S. outspends Japan on health care per capita by a margin of two to one, and yet millions of Americans remain without health insurance.

Book News Annotation:

Berkowitz (history, George Washington U.) describes our welfare system and the wide and passionate swings in political and public opinion over the last 50 years. The same book block is offered in case binding at thrice this price.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

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.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [199]-208) and index.
