This book was excellent. There was some theory in it, but it was a small amount and it was all well explained. This was my favorite book from my public policy class because it actually explained how policy can have an effect on people. I.E. depending on what kind of assistance a person gets they are either a "lazy welfare queen" as the stereotype goes or a person who just needs help and is "deserving" of that help like SSD. Very good book. I cannot recommend this book enough.

I'll be honest with you all.

The only reason why I bought this book was for a friend of mine, so I don't really have a valid review to write other than:

My friend is a International Relations major and claims that the book is a "Really Good Book" to read.

Other than that...That's all I got folks!

:)
