Social Work Trattner writes clearly and simply.

Social Work Trattner writes clearly and simply. It is a pleasure to read a book that one not only understands but that stimulates hope in the future from insights drawn from the past.

This book starts from recorded history and then narrows focus to the United States. The coverage also ends at the end of Bill Clinton's presidency - and I'm not sure things have gotten better for the poor, those in poverty, or those people just one missed paycheck away from being in poverty. I am glad that the publishers continued to print the prefaces, as it shows the author's mindset at each of the revisions.

Trattner takes the reader back in time to define how modern American has developed its current welfare state

Trattner takes the reader back in time to define how modern American has developed its current welfare state. Certainly this is a task that cannot be fully done in only 400 pages. The only weakness in this book is that it is too brief. It does not go into enough detail, but it is comprehensive enough to give a solid introduction to the modern American welfare state and the issues that face America's poor.

I paid full price for this product and am reviewing of my own accord. Great book. Easy and compelling read which is a difficult feat when discussing such emotionally charged subject matters. Ken Burns & Trattner should talk IMO.
Survivors
I thought the book was very informative. Though there seems to be a lack of content about classism and its affect on social welfare.

Published in 1999 and somewhat dated, but a good historical overview of social welfare in the United States, particulary in the early portion of the nation's history. A good beginner guide to the subject matter--not recommended for those who are already subject matter experts in the area.
Biaemi

This text was very informative and helped me gain a better understanding of the history of social work in America. I now understand why we are at the point we are in the field, and where we came from to get here.
