24 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social policy is a continuously evolving field requiring constant review, documentation, and analysis.

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.

Community participation, social development, and the state by James Midgley( Book )

10 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although community participation is one of the most popular themes in development studies today, many of the complex and controversial issues attending the concept have not been properly debated. A major concern is the role of the state in community participation. While some believe that the state should encourage and sponsor community participation, others reject state involvement on the ground that it dilutes participatory ideals. This is the first book to examine in detail the question of the role of the state in community participation. It asks whether state involvement is beneficial or harmful to community participation and whether community and state resources can be harmonized to promote social development. In addition to its central theme, this book traces the history of community participation ideas and provides a detailed exposition of the theory and practice of the subject. It is essential reading for all students of development studies, public administration, sociology, social work and social administration interested in Third World issues

James Midgley provides a broad overview of social welfare, outlining key institutions, terminology, historical research, and approaches. He also details reasons for the existence of international social welfare and the challenges that arise from it. The author includes an important section on applied international social welfare that addresses the concerns of practitioners--concerns that have been neglected in much of the literature in the field. An entire section of the book is devoted to issues of social work practice, social developments, the activities of international agencies, and their collaborative efforts. While practical application is an important focus of the book, several chapters deal with key theoretical debates in the field.

Social security, the economy and development by James Midgley( Book )

17 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the complex relationship between social security and economic development, arguing that social security contributes positively to economic development by promoting social investments that not only foster economic growth but enhance social welfare for all. The contributors analyse the various forms of social security, and, through comprehensive analysis of country experiences, demonstrates that the relationship between social security and economic development defies the simplistic interpretations currently popular in literature on the subject. A variety of country case studies are explored including Britain, Chile, China, India, Korea, Norway, Singapore, South Africa and the United States. This topical volume is a vital companion for all interested in the dynamics of the relationship between social security and the economy
