"Now featuring a full color design, the best-selling text for policy analysis provides students with a comprehensive overview of social welfare policy in the United States while examining cutting-edge issues." Thoroughly updated and revised to reflect the impact of dramatic changes in social welfare policy, the "Research Navigator Fifth Edition "continues to focus on how the major sectors of social welfare policy-- the voluntary, governmental, and corporate sectors-- operate and co-exist (the " pluralist approach" ), while also offering a clear, user-friendly framework for policy analysis. New! The "Research Navigator edition "includes "48 pages of additional material in the frontmatter," featuring a chapter-by-chapter update on various policy issues, changes in Congress and legislation since publication of the 5/e in July 2005. (Note: frontmatter numbered as RN-1, etc, so it does not affect the pagination of the original 5/e, therefore no need to change syllabi if currently using the 5/e of Karger). New! "" Research Activities" at the end of each chapter in frontmatter "to help students think critically about social welfare and conduct additional research in areas of interest.
