Social Policy and Social Justice
The book uses case studies and rigorous analysis to explore the relationship of social policy to economic, social, and culture transformation and the ongoing conflict between universal and population-specific conceptions of social welfare. The book addresses recent dramatic changes in social policy and the environment that shapes it. These include implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the Black Lives Matter movement, and Supreme Court decisions on issues such as voting and reproductive rights, marriage equality, and the limits of executive authority.
Social Policy and Social Justice is ideal for undergraduate and graduate social work courses, as well as classes in cognate fields such as nursing, public policy, and political science.
