Summary
    Social Policy and Social Justice: Meeting the Challenges of a Diverse Society is built on a clear, conceptual social justice framework and provides up-to-date rigorous analyses of contemporary social policy issues, written by experts in their particular areas of research and practice. The book explores 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 fourth edition provides readers with the most comprehensive and up-to-date information and analyses related to social policy and social justice. It discusses the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on socioeconomic inequality in the U.S.; the Trump administration’s impact on social policy; policy initiatives undertaken and proposed by the Biden administration; and the implications of the Black Lives Matter movement on the development of anti-racist social policies. The text examines ongoing political and ideological conflicts on social policies that affect women; the consequences of recent changes in the Supreme Court and federal judiciary on social policy; the impact of the Affordable Care Act on health care access, cost, and quality; the emergence of environmental justice and climate change as key social policy issues; and more.

    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.
