Social policy is a continuously evolving field requiring constant review, documentation, and analysis. The Handbook of Social Policy is an attempt to document the now substantial body of knowledge about government social policies that has been accumulated since the study of social policy first emerged as an organized field of academic endeavor about 50 years ago. The Second Edition offers a more streamlined format to make the book more consistent with the way most instructors teach their courses. This text is a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to a vast field of endeavor that has, over the years, made a significant difference to the lives and the well-being of the people of the United States. New to the Second Edition Provides up-to-date policies and references to include the latest information on social policy Offers a state of the art account of American social policy at the beginning of the 21st century Presents contributions, including more case studies and examples, from leading experts in their respective areas challenge the norm in thinking about social welfare policy Focuses more attention on diverse populations and international issues Includes added content to reflect the areas that have received increased attention such as advocacy, policy practice, immigration issues, discrimination, and more.

Social policies for the elderly in the third world by Martin Tracy( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces a problem-solving model to cross-national studies of social programs for the elderly in economically developing nations - the Third World, a term that is used here only as a designation of unspecified relatively lower levels of industrial and economic development. Current models of cross-national analysis tend to focus on theory testing and description; they fail to provide the practical information that indigenous policymakers need to decide whether another nation's policy, program, or provision is appropriate to their own country

The puritans Thomas & Stephen Tracy : a personal quest for family lineage by Martin Tracy( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an exploration of the author's early American Puritan heritage. It is intended to be a lighthearted but factual description of the lives and times of two Tracy ancestors who played instrumental roles in the development of New England. The book provides details of the author's process of researching facts and historical content, including the missteps, brick walls, and serendipitous discoveries along the way. Any amateur genealogist and fledgling historian will appreciate the author's encounters with the difficulties of writing family history and the rewards that come from unraveling family mysteries" -- Publisher's description
