Faculty Book: Mimi Abramovitz

Joel Blau, with Mimi Abramovitz

The Dynamics of Social Welfare Policy, 2nd rev. edition
(Oxford University Press, 2007)

The first edition of The Dynamics of Social Welfare Policy reinvented the standard social welfare policy text to speak to students in a vital new way. This second edition builds on its strengths, with a thorough update of the effects of recent political and legislative changes on social welfare programs. Highlights from this edition include: revised data in text, charts, and graphs that show how government policies are proving the points made throughout the chapters; exhaustive statistics about every major social program's budget, benefits, and participants; an underlying policy model updated in response to the evolving political environment; more graphics and an attractive new two-color interior design that make debates easier to grasp and the book easier to navigate.

Mimi Abramovitz is a professor of social welfare at Hunter College and the Graduate Center.
