Welfare Reform, 1996-2000: Is There a Safety Net?

Synopsis

As editors Morris and Hansan make clear, the United States is truly the reluctant welfare state. Unlike other industrialized nations, the United States has never adopted a universal policy to support a minimum economic standard for children and their families. In this collection of essays by leading experts on welfare policy, the major issues of personal responsibility versus dependence, child development, and federal versus state, local, and private responsibility are examined in the light of the 1996 Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act.
