Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Battle for Welfare Rights unearths the remarkable moment in history when a movement led by African American women shook the nation's foundations of power. . . . Essential reading for students of welfare history, theory, and politics, as well as an inspiration to those who carry on the battle for social justice in America."—Dorothy Roberts, Northwestern University



"A rich chronicle of welfare rights activity, the 'movement's' strategic thinking, and the political and policy context that shaped and interacted with the movement."—Rickie Solinger, author of Beggars and Choosers: How the Politics of Choice Shapes Adoption, Abortion, and Welfare in the United States



"The most sophisticated study of welfare rights organizing to date. It engages with grassroots and high politics, social history and social thought, and, in the process, illuminates how law and social work shaped the movement to secure the 'rightly needs' of poor solo mothers. . . . Kornbluh does it all with insight and verve."—Eileen Boris, University of California, Santa Barbara

We just finished it for my class and I thought it was great not a lot of people know about the welfare rights movement because of the civil rights movement going on at the time and she did a great job at showing the welfare recipients as activist and not as lazy ppl who want money it was nice to hear them as a voice and not as a stereotype!
