Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mr. Howard's book is not meant for the reader with a casual interest in his subject. But. . . it stimulates all sorts of radical thoughts--some of them perhaps more radical than the author intended."--David Frum, The Wall Street Journal

From the Back Cover


"At last, a clear and thoughtful exploration of almost uncharted territory--the extensive American system of tax subsidies for social benefits, targeted primarily on the well-to-do. Christopher Howard's thoroughly researched book will vastly increase our understanding of a significant and virtually unknown part of American policymaking."--Paul Pierson, Harvard University


"[The Hidden Welfare State] will make students of social policy rethink many of their key assumptions about how social policies are adopted and how they expand. It is essential reading for students of American social policy."--Margaret Weir, Brookings Institution

An outstanding coverage of the use of tax deductions as an alternative to direct government entitlements. Includes the history of such deductions in the United States from the early twentieth century to the present

Interested in current debates about dependency on goverment handouts? Read this and Susanne Mettsler (spelling? ) book. We are all on the take, just in different ways --mostly in tax breaks which are included revenue bills and rarely discussed in public debate with significant conquences for the democratic process. Bartels book helps explain why
