Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is an ambitious effort by Quadagno ( Aging in Early Industrial Society ) to discuss the evolution of public assistance, and eventually of social security, over two centuries of U.S. history. The main themes are the reasons for America's comparatively late development of national welfare programs; the influence of big business and craft labor unions in shaping these programs; and southern planters' key role in limiting public welfare. The argument that this material can be fitted into a Marxian matrix is not convincing. The writing is turgid and prolix. An optional purchase for comprehensive subject collections.
