The Policy-Based Profession: An Introduction to Social Welfare Policy Analysis for Social Workers, Fourth Edition Philip R. Popple,Universityof Texas at Arlington, andLeslie Leighninger, Arizona State University This social welfare policy text, written specifically for use within the field of social work, shows students the crucial connection between social policy and the everyday practice of social work. The fourth edition ofThe Policy-Based Professionprovides students with a process for analyzing policies that will help them as they enter a career in social work. It offers a detailed foundation for policy analysis, including chapters on historical policy analysis, social/economic analysis, and political analysis. This text gives students current examples of major social welfare initiatives within each policy area, including welfare reform, mental health managed care, the campaign to restructure Social Security, reactions to current immigration issues, current threats to workers' pensions, program and policy responses to the problems of substance abuse, and the use of family preservation as an approach to child protection. What Reviewers Are Saying "The text is well written, thoroughly documented and is understandable." Patricia K. Cianciolo, Northern Michigan University "I like the way the text is organized (analytical model first, followed by material related to major social welfare policies and themes). I compliment the authors on their consistent use of their analytical model to organize the chapters in Part II. I think identifying and using the model introduced in earlier chapters to discuss current themes in Part III is a very focused, effective strategy. My students tell me that they find the text very readable and interesting." Patrick Dattalo, Virginia Commonwealth University "The approachteach analysis, then provide for the learning of content (issues) through the analysis of them. Brilliant."
