3.0 out of 5 stars Lost Ground: Welfare Reform, Poverty, and Beyond
Compilation of many writers' summations of America's welfare policies and attitudes over the years, and how the Welfare Reform Act of 1996 adversely affected the poorest in our country. Very informative, but bogs down in the middle as several narratives are rather redundant. Be sure to read the last chapter!

5.0 out of 5 stars A very wide area of controversial issues, October 8, 2002
This review is from: Lost Ground: Welfare Reform, Poverty, and Beyond (Paperback)
Collaboratively compiled and edited by Randy Albelda (Economics, University of Massachusetts) and Ann Withorn (Social Policy, University of Massachusetts), Lost Ground: Welfare Reform, Poverty, And Beyond is a scholarly selection of impressive essays by a variety of learned authors on topics relating to American welfare policy. From the effects of globalization on the current system, to fallacies of welfare-to-work policies, to issues of the rights of women and people of color, Lost Ground covers a very wide area of controversial issues often conveniently ignored by today's too-eager politics. Lost Ground is a welcome and strongly recommended addition to academic reference collections and reading lists in the area of American social policy in general, and welfare reform in particular.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book from AK Press, August 16, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Lost Ground: Welfare Reform, Poverty, and Beyond (Paperback)
The downside of welfare reforn is well documented in this new anthology. Moreover, welfare issues are analyzed in the context of broad political shifts, including globalization, the end of the family wage, the sexual revolution, and rise of black liberation, feminism, and multiculturalism.
