✏Brooks Cole Empowerment Series The Reluctant Welfare State Book Summary : Written in clear, lively prose by one of the foremost scholars of social welfare, this book analyzes the evolution of the American welfare state from colonial times to the present-placing social policy in its political, cultural, and societal context. Part of the BROOKS/COLE EMPOWERMENT SERIES, THE RELUCTANT WELFARE STATE, 8th Edition, aims to help students develop the core competencies and practice behaviors outlined in the 2008 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). Rather than passively reading about social welfare history, students are asked to interact with the issues, oppressed populations, ethical choices, social and ideological conflicts, advocates, and policies in preceding eras and in the contemporary period-analytically and ethically. The author examines how social welfare policy connects to an empowerment perspective, showing how vulnerable populations, as well as social reformers, have achieved progressive reforms through policy advocacy.
