The welfare debate

Greenwood Press,
Pub. Date:
Since colonial times, says Shaw (political science, Illinois Wesleyan U.) Americans have agreed that poor people should be provided with at least a minimal subsistence, though throughout the country's history controversies have raged about how and how much. To provide background for people engaged in or interested in the debate today, he traces the history of welfare from the early republic to neoliberalism.
