Advocacy Coalition and Welfare Policy: Analyzing Coalition Consensus.
Advocacy Coalition and Welfare Policy cover image By Roberto Marie Ike.
Lanham, MD: University Press of America, ©2007.
"Advocacy Coalition and Welfare Policy deals with values; especially religiously based values, in public policy and how these religious values and ideas can improve one's understanding of the human condition and ultimately affect policymaking. Focusing on advocacy coalition and welfare policy, this book examines the relationship between Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Catholic clergy during the 1930s and the impact of this relationship on New Deal programs." (publisher's description)

Analysing Social Policy: A Governmental Approach.
Edited by Greg Marston and Catherine McDonald.
Analysing Social Policy: A Governmental Approach cover image Cheltenham, UK; Northampton, MA: Edward Elgar, 2006.
"This book brings together leading international researchers to discuss governmental approaches to analysing social policies.
Analysing Social Policy expands the scope of social policy analysis using the insights from post-Foucauldian scholarship on the art of governing in liberal democracies. One of the main conclusions reached is that policy researchers need to pay much greater attention to the minutiae of policy reform, and to the discursive and material ways in which power operates in policy change.
The chapters comprising this book are purposefully written in a clear, accessible and reflective manner, with each of the contributions empirically grounded, drawing on social policy problems and practices in many countries, ranging from North America to Europe to Australasia. The editors address key concerns of both policy analysts as well as academic researchers attempting to locate appropriate theoretical frameworks to make sense of welfare state restructuring in the 21st century.
This book will appeal to researchers and research students in political science, social policy, social work and sociology through its demonstration of how to apply contemporary social theory to research problems. It will also be of interest to policy scholars around the world who are involved in analysing the intersections of power, politics and policy." (publisher's description)

Analysing Social Policy Concepts and Language: Comparative and Transnational Perspectives.
Analysing Social Policy Concepts and Language: Comparative and Transnational Perspectives cover image By Daniel Béland and Klaus Peterson.
Bristol, Englad; Chicago, IL: Policy Press, 2014.
"Social policy scholars and practitioners work with concepts such as "welfare state" and "social security" but where do these concepts come from and how has their meaning changed over time Which are the dominant social policy concepts and how are they contested What characterises social policy language in specific countries and regions of the world and how do social concepts travel between countries Addressing such questions in a systematic manner for the first time, this edited collection, written by a cross-disciplinary group of leading social policy researchers, analyses the concepts and language used to make sense of contemporary social policy. The volume focuses on OECD countries located on four different continents: Asia, Australasia, Europe, and North America. Combining detailed chapters on particular countries with broader comparative chapters, the book strikes a rare balance between case studies and transnational perspectives. It will be of interest to academics and students in social policy, social work, political science, sociology, history, and public administration, as well as practitioners and policy makers." - (publisher's description)

An Analytic Assessment of U.S. Drug Policy.
An Analytic Assessment of U.S. Drug Policy cover image By David Boyum and Peter Reuter.
Series: AEI Evaluative Studies.
Washington, DC: AEI Press, 2005.
"In its efforts to control the use of cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and other illegal drugs, the United States spends about $35 billion per year in public funds. Almost half a million dealers and users are under incarceration. In this book, David Boyum and Peter Reuter provide an assessment of how well this massive investment of tax dollars and government authority is working. Boyum and Reuter show that America's drug problem is mainly a legacy of the epidemics of heroin, cocaine, and crack use during the 1970s and 1980s, which left us with aging cohorts of criminally active and increasingly sick users. Newer drugs, such as Ecstasy and methamphetamine, perennially threaten to become comparable problems, but so far have not. Using a market framework, the book discusses the nature and effectiveness of efforts to tackle the nation's drug problems.
Drug policy has become increasingly punitive, with the number of drug offenders in jail and prison growing tenfold between 1980 and 2003. Nevertheless, there is strikingly little evidence that tougher law enforcement can materially reduce drug use. By contrast, drug treatment services remain in short supply, even though research indicates that treatment expenditures easily pay for themselves in terms of reduced crime and improved productivity. Boyum and Reuter conclude that America's drug policy should be reoriented in several ways to be more effective. Enforcement should focus on reducing drug-related problems, such as violence associated with drug markets, rather than on locking up large numbers of low-level dealers.
Treatment services for heavy users, particularly methadone and other opiate maintenance therapies, need more money and fewer regulations. And programs that coerce convicted drug addicts to enter treatment and maintain abstinence as a condition of continued freedom should be expanded.
The AEI Evaluative Studies series aims to promote greater understanding and continuing review of major activities of the federal government. Each study focuses on a government program or policy in operation by examining its purposes, administration, costs, and effectiveness and then recommends practical reforms for improved performance. David Boyum is an independent consultant in New York City. Peter Reuter is a professor at the University of Maryland and a senior economist in the Drug Policy Research Center at RAND."

Australia's Welfare Wars Revisited: The Players, the Politics and the Ideologies, Revised edition.
Australia's Welfare Wars Revisited: The Players, the Politics and the Ideologies cover image By Philip Mendes.
Sydney, Australia: University of New South Wales Press, 2008.
"This represents a substantial revision of Philip Mendes's successful textbook Australia's Welfare Wars, in which the author explains - and questions - many of the values and assumptions that underpin contemporary social welfare policies. In particular, the book is critical of the neoliberal or economic rationalist ideas that now dominate the welfare debates in Australia and overseas, and instead demonstrates and reaffirms the ongoing relevance of social-democratic and welfare-state ideals."

Canadian Social Policy: Issues and Perspectives, 4th edition.
Canadian Social Policy: Issues and Perspectives cover image Edited by Anne Westhues.
Waterloo, Ont., Canada: Wilfrid Laurier University Press, ©2006.
"The objective of this new edition is the same as that of previous editions: to help students understand social policy from a Canadian perspective, and to stir them to discussion and debate. Part One provides a general overview of social policy and Part Two discusses the policy-making processes, from the international factors that influence them to the ways in which a social worker can become part of this process. Part Three focuses on current social policy issues, and Part Four offers a look to the future.
Each chapter of this best-selling book has been thoroughly updated for this new edition with regard to current policy, debated issues, and resources cited. Three new chapters have been added, including an overview of adult mental health policy and a critical look at risk assessment in child welfare. There is also a discussion of current challenges to the Charter of Rights and Canadians increasing use of the justice system to shape social policy.
As a result, the reader gains an informed perspective of policy development and evaluation. Although designed primarily for use by social workers, the book will benefit anyone who is involved in the policy-making process." (publisher's description)

The Challenge of Children's Rights for Canada.
By Katherine Covell and Robert Brian Howe.
The Challenge of Children's Rights for Canada cover image Waterloo, Ont., Canada: Wilfrid Laurier University Press, 2001.
Series: Studies in childhood and family in Canada.
"Canada signed the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child over a decade ago, yet there is still a lack of awareness about and provision for children's rights.
What are Canada's obligations to children? How has Canada fallen short? Why is it so important to the future of Canadian society that children's rights be met?
Prompted by the gap between the promise of children's rights and the reality of their continuing denial, Katherine Covell and R. Brian Howe call for changes to existing laws, policies and practices. Using the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child as their framework, the authors examine the continuing problems of child poverty, child care, child protection, youth justice and the suppression of children's voices. They challenge us to move from seeing children as parental property to seeing children as independent bearers of rights.
In The Challenge of Children's Rights for Canada, Canada's obligations and the rights of children are examined from the perspectives of research and development in the fields of developmental psychology, developmental neuroscience, law and family policy.
This timely and accessible book will be of interest to academics, policy-makers and anyone who cares about children and about taking children's rights seriously." (publisher's description)

A review of salient systemic issues in the field of children, youth, and family services completes this collection." (publisher's description)

Child Welfare: Policies and Best Practices, 2nd edition.
Child Welfare: Policies and Best Practices cover image By Jannah Hurn Mather, Patricia B. Lager, and Norma J. Harris.
Belmont, CA: Thomson Brooks/Cole, ©2007.
"This groundbreaking book discusses both child welfare policy and child welfare practice and provides a fully integrated balance between the two. By using what research has proven to be the best-practice methods, this approach enables readers not only to understand policies and laws, but also learn how to be an effective practitioner and advocate when working in a myriad of situations. As they focus on an approach with a multi-systemic view, readers learn how to prevent crisis situations such as child abuse and neglect and family separation, rather than simply react to these issues."

Creating Gender: The Sexual Politics of Welfare Policy.
Creating Gender: The Sexual Politics of Welfare Policy cover image By Cathy Marie Johnson, Georgia Duerst-Lahti, and Noelle H. Norton.
Boulder, CO: Lynne Rienner Publishers, 2007.
"Seldom do we notice, let alone explicitly acknowledge, that public policies set distinct parameters for gender. But as "Creating Gender" compellingly demonstrates, in reality governments do use policy - to legitimize and support some gender-based behaviors, while undermining others. Looking in depth at the case of welfare reform, but considering a wide range of policy arenas, the authors examine how government policymaking in essence defines the "proper" nature of males and females.
At the heart of their analysis is an effort to resolve questions about how policies determine what women and men must do to be granted standing as good citizens - and what benefits they can subsequently accrue. The result is a clear yet sophisticated exploration of the troublesome, sometimes insidious, ways in which gender ideology works in tandem with conventional political ideologies in the United States today. It explores the ways that the government uses to legitimize and support some gender-based behaviors, while undermining others." (publisher's description)

Drug War Deadlock: The Policy Battle Continues.
Drug War Deadlock: The Policy Battle Continues cover image Edited by Laura E. Huggins.
Stanford, CA: Hoover Institution Press, Stanford University, ©2005.
Series: Hoover Institution Press publication; no. 539.
"The dynamics of our drug policies in the United States are a complex puzzle to which there are no simplistic solutions. Drug War Deadlock presents a diverse collection of readings from scholarly journals, government reports, think tank studies, newspapers, and books that offer a comprehensive look at the drug debate.
Each section of the book features opposing articles written by many of the foremost authorities in their respective fields, offering a concise view of the many divergent viewpoints surrounding drug policy in America. The authors discuss the cases for and against such alternatives as legalization, decriminalization, and harm reduction. In addition, they examine Europe's more liberal drug policies and debate whether they could be effectively applied in the United States.
Throughout the book, they consider the moral implications of drug use and the thorny questions surrounding the nature and limits of restrictions that society can exercise over free individuals regarding their personal choices.
Drug War Deadlock does not attempt to provide answers to every issue relating to illegal drugs, but it will enable the reader to draw his or her own conclusions concerning some of the more urgent questions of our day." (publisher's description)

Drug War Heresies: Learning from Other Vices, Times, and Places.
By Robert J. MacCoun and Peter Reuter.
Drug War Heresies: Learning from Other Vices, Times, and Places cover image Cambridge, UK; New York, NY: Cambridge University Press, 2001.
"This book provides the first multidisciplinary and nonpartisan analysis of how the United States should decide on the legal status of cocaine, heroin and marijuana. It draws on data about the experiences of Western European nations with less punitive drug policies as well as new analyses of America's experience with legal cocaine and heroin a century ago, and of America's efforts to regulate gambling, prostitution, alcohol and cigarettes. It offers projections on the likely consequences of a number of different legalization regimes and shows that the choice about how to regulate drugs involves complicated tradeoffs among goals and conflict among social groups. The book presents a sophisticated discussion of how society should deal with the uncertainty about the consequences of legal change. Finally, it explains, in terms of individual attitudes toward risk, why it is so difficult to accomplish substantial reform of drug policy in America." (publisher's description)

Eastern European Adoption: Policies, Practice, and Strategies for Change.
Eastern European Adoption: Policies, Practice, and Strategies for Change cover image By Josephine A. Ruggiero.
New Brunswick, NJ: Transaction Publishers, ©2007.
"This volume addresses adoption policies and practices as they pertain to adopted children from Eastern Europe, children who have histories of 'pre-adoption adversity.' Drawing on her decade-long experience as an adoptive parent of siblings born in Russia and her expertise as an applied sociologist, Josephine Ruggiero examines the central issues involved in international adoptions, focusing on older children as well as siblings, and suggesting needed changes in policy and practice.
Only about three in ten Russian adoptees joined their new families as infants. Pre-adoption experiences are also significant factors in a child's ability to adjust and function well in a new family. Countries differ in risk factors that may figure into the likelihood of adoptees adapting to life in a new family. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, serious medical conditions, emotional problems, behavioral problems, attachment issues, learning disabilities, and exposure to family violence must be considered as potential risk factors in adoptions. Pre-adoption adversity is less likely when children come from birth families that are economically poor but have bonded with them.
At a time when adoption has finally 'come out of the closet' and the definition of the family is changing dramatically, Eastern European Adoption takes a much-needed look at current adoption policies and practices and how well they do or do not work. Ruggiero draws on the literature on older-child and sibling adoption, and data from a questionnaire survey she designed and conducted with 121 adoptive parents. Ruggiero's examples from real adoptive families give a human face to the issues, needs, and strategies she discusses." (publisher's description)

Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson Prentice Hall, ©2007.
"This book presents three systematic methods for analyzing public policy issues: utilitarianism, deontology, and prudent pragmatism. It argues for the superiority of prudent pragmatism to the other two approaches. These are described in Part One, together with substantive American values which form the assumptons of ethical analysis. Part Two contains an historical discussion of six public policy areas and presents two detailed case studies in each area. Each case is analysed from the standpoint of utilitarian, deontological, and prudent pragmatic ethics, and an effort is made to show why prudent pragmatism produces the most satisfying results."

New York, NY: Russell Sage Foundation, 2003.
"Parents around the world grapple with the common challenge of balancing work and childcare. Despite common problems, the advanced, industrialized nations have developed dramatically different social and labor market policies--policies that vary widely in the level of support they provide for parents and the extent to which they encourage an equal division of labor between parents as they balance work and care. In Families That Work, Janet Gornick and Marcia Meyers take a close look at the family-work policies in the United States and abroad and call for a new and expanded role for the U.S. government in order to bring this country up to the standards taken for granted in many other Western nations."

Family Support: Linking Project Evaluation to Policy Analysis.
Family Support: Linking Project Evaluation to Policy Analysis cover image By John Pinkerton, Kathryn Higgins, and Paula Devine.
Aldershot, UK; Burlington, VT: Ashgate, 2000.
Series: Evaluative Research in Social Work.
"An exploration of the link between individualized project evaluation and policy analysis. The conceptual and legislative frameworks which contextualize family support are explored and, by drawing on existing literature, the book aims to provide a one-volume guide to and discussion of key developments within family support, in the UK and internationally, as well as within Northern Ireland, where the research is set. Five family support settings are selected for close examination by the research and the key evaluation questions applied. The book details the methodology employed, and explores exactly how the settings were organized for family support. Additionally, the book seeks to identify needs in the context of family support across the range of settings by examining indicators of potential need. Services appropriate to family support were also analyzed across the range of settings. Finally, the book reviews the settings against criteria for the evaluation and development of projects considered to be family support." (publisher's description)

From Witches to Crack Moms: Women, Drug Law, and Policy.
From Witches to Crack Moms: Women, Drug Law, and Policy cover image By Susan C. Boyd.
Durham, NC: Carolina Academic Press, ©2004.
"Susan Boyd examines how the regulation of altered states of consciousness and women's bodies is not new. Like the witches of old, women suspected of using illegal drugs today are persecuted and punished. From Witches to Crack Moms offers a critique of drug law and policy and its impact on women in the United States, and illuminates similarities and differences in Britain and Canada.
Informed by a feminist sociological perspective, Boyd discusses how drug law and policy is racialized, class-biased, and gendered. She highlights how punitive drug laws inform and shape social service and medical policy and practice. Boyd also provides insight into how the war on drugs and the regulation of reproduction intersect, culminating in a volatile mix. Also examined is legal and illegal drug use, maternal drug use, and neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), against the backdrop of the regulation of all women. In addition, Boyd examines how prisons, social services, medical treatment, maternity care, drug treatment, and drug court policy and practice have been restructured as a result of the war on drugs.
Although the focus of this book is on women's experience of the war on drugs, it also examines how law and policy affect women and men in similar and different ways, and how the regulation of male drug users affects women, families, and communities. Boyd also discusses domestic and international drug policy, exploring how Western imperialism and colonization were accompanied by the condemnation of plants used in spiritual healing by indigenous peoples of North and South America. The impact of the war on drugs on women and indigenous peoples in Colombia is also discussed in order to reveal the connections between the regulation of drug use in Western liberal states and non-Western states. Boyd examines the 'Americanization' of drug policy and how the war on drugs, the war on terrorism, and the war on crime are law enforcement initiatives that have that have become global in their reach.
Boyd concludes that today, as the war on drugs advances, women have plenty to fear, but not necessarily from alleged drug users and dealers, but from moral regulation in all its guises, and from state, military, criminal justice, and corporate attempts to erode democracy to further their interests in Western and Third World nations. Boyd closes by stating that social justice, rather than criminal justice, is the goal to work toward. She proposes that ending the war on drugs is one strategy on the road to achieving social justice." (publisher's description)

Health Policy Analysis: An Interdisciplinary Approach.
Health Policy Analysis: An Interdisciplinary Approach cover image By Curtis P. McLaughlin and Craig D. McLaughlin.
Sudbury, MA: Jones and Bartlett Publishers, ©2008.
"This innovative book analyzes current U.S. health policy and proposes various alternatives for developing future health policy. Unlike other texts on the subject, it does not attempt to push a single solution set. Rather, it takes the perspectives of a variety of disciplines including economics, political science, management, communications, and public health. The authors also draw on the experiences of health policies in other countries including Canada and European nations. Organized into three sections, Health Policy Analysis: An Interdisciplinary Approach addresses the context of U.S. health policy, the policy analysis process, and professional response. The first section explores the current issues with the system and its history and then reviews the alternatives for future policy that have strong support. The second section identifies the issues and reviews the political processes that influence planning in various healthcare settings. It presents the accepted methods of economic and financial analysis and addresses the ethical and other value considerations that must enter into the health policy process. The final section deals with the roles, skills, and leadership that health professionals can bring to the policy making process in their local and national communities." (publisher's description)

The Healthcare Fix: Universal Insurance for All Americans.
The Healthcare Fix: Universal Insurance for All Americans cover image By Laurence J. Kotlikoff.
Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, ©2007.
"The shocking statistic is that forty-seven million Americans have no health insurance. When uninsured Americans go to the emergency room for treatment, however, they do receive care--and a bill. Many hospitals now require uninsured patients to put their treatment on a credit card--which can saddle a low-income household with unpayably high balances that can lead to personal bankruptcy. Why don't these people just buy health insurance? Because the cost of coverage that doesn't come through an employer is more than many low- and middle-income households make in a year. Meanwhile, rising healthcare costs for employees are driving many businesses under. As for government-supplied health care, ever higher costs and added benefits (for example, Part D, Medicare's new prescription drug coverage) make both Medicare and Medicaid impossible to sustain fiscally; benefits grow faster than the national per-capita income. It's obvious the system is broken. What can we do?
In The Healthcare Fix, economist Laurence Kotlikoff proposes a simple, straightforward approach to the problem that would create one system that works for everyone--and secure America's fiscal and economic future. Kotlikoff's proposed Medical Security System is not the "socialized medicine" so feared by Republicans and libertarians; it's a plan for universal health insurance. Because everyone would be insured, it's also a plan for universal healthcare.
Participants--including all who are currently uninsured, all Medicaid and Medicare recipients, and all with private or employer-supplied insurance--would receive annual vouchers for health insurance, the amount of which would be based on their current medical condition. Insurance companies would willingly accept people with health problems because their vouchers would be higher. And the government could control costs by establishing the values of the vouchers so that benefit growth no longer outstrips growth of the nation's per capita income. It's a 'single-payer' plan--but a single payer for insurance. The American healthcare industry would remain competitive, innovative, strong, and private.
Kotlikoff's plan is strong medicine for America's healthcare crisis, but brilliant in its simplicity. Its provisions can fit on a postcard--and Kotlikoff provides one, ready to be copied and mailed to your representative in Congress...." (publisher's description)

The Khat Controversy: Stimulating the Debate on Drugs.
By David Anderson, Susan Beckerleg, Degol Hailu, and Axel Klein.
The Khat Controversy: Stimulating the Debate on Drugs cover image Oxford, England, UK; New York, NY: Berg, 2007.
Series: Cultures of consumption series.
"Khat is a natural substance that, in the Middle East, is as ubiquitous as coffee in the West. It is hugely popular in some African and Arab populations. But critics contend that it is a seriously addictive stimulant that damages the cardiovascular system. In a groundbreaking study, the authors go behind the veil of the drug, questioning its availability and its affect on its Red Sea producers. Interwoven with case studies from Djibouti to Rome, The Khat Controversy goes deeper to explore contemporary issues relating to globalization, ethnicity and culture. The first study of this contested drug, Khat provides a concise introduction to the issues surrounding Khat usage and suggests how policymakers should address them." (publisher's description)

Lies, Damned Lies, and Drug War Statistics: A Critical Analysis of Claims Made by the Office of National Drug Control Policy.
By Matthew B. Robinson and Renee G. Scherlen.
Lies, Damned Lies, and Drug War Statistics: A Critical Analysis of Claims Made by the Office of National Drug Control Policy cover image Albany, NY: State University of New York Press, ©2007.
"This book critically analyzes claims made by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), the White House agency of accountability in the nation's drug war. Specifically, the book examines six editions of the annual National Drug Control Strategy between 2000 and 2005 to determine if ONDCP accurately and honestly presents information or intentionally distorts evidence to justify continuing the war on drugs.
Matthew B. Robinson and Renee G. Scherlen uncover the many ways in which ONDCP manipulates statistics and visually presents that information to the public. Their analysis demonstrates a drug war that consistently fails to reduce drug use, drug fatalities or illnesses associated with drug use; fails to provide treatment for drug dependent users; and drives up the prices of drugs. They conclude with policy recommendations for reforming ONDCP's use of statistics, as well as how the nation fights the war on drugs." (publisher's description)

Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield, ©2004.
Notes: "Published in cooperation with the National Center for Policy Analysis."
"Lives at Risk identifies 20 myths about health care as delivered in countries that have national health insurance. These myths have gained the status of fact in both the United States and abroad, even though the evidence shows a far different reality. The authors also explore the political and economic climate of the health care system and offer alternatives to the current health care public policies." (publisher's description)

Multiple Meanings of Gender Equality: A Critical Frame Analysis of Gender Policies in Europe, English edition.
Multiple Meanings of Gender Equality: A Critical Frame Analysis of Gender Policies in Europe cover image Edited by Mieke Verloo.
Budapest ; New York, NY: CEU Press, 2007.
Series: CPS Books.
"This CEU Center for Policy Studies (CPS) book aims to map the diversity of meanings of gender equality across Europe and reflects on the contested concept of gender equality. In its exploration of this diversity it not only takes into account the existence of different visions of gender equality and the way in which different political and theoretical debates crosscut these visions, but also reflects upon the geographical contexts in which visions and debates over gender equality are located. The contextual locations where the analyzed debates take place include the European Union and Austria, Greece, Hungary, the Netherlands, Slovenia, and Spain. In the discussion of the different ways of framing gender equality, each chapter provides insights into the ongoing theoretical and political debate about 'what is gender equality?', disclosing the visions, debates, and contexts that move around and contribute to shape such a complex and contested concept."

Policy Analysis for Practice: Applying Social Policy.
Policy Analysis for Practice: Applying Social Policy cover image By Paul Spicker.
Bristol, UK: Policy, 2006.
"People who work in planning, management and service delivery in the public sector need to know how policy is translated into practice, what is happening, and whether a policy works. Policy Analysis for Practice introduces students and practitioners to the concepts, methods and techniques required to undertake the analysis and review of policy and its implementation. It combines material from public and social administration with examples and application to social policy and the social services. It focuses on developing understanding and skills for a growing area of practice. The book looks at ways to understand and analyse the main stages of the policy process: developing strategies, identifying aims, examining the situation, choosing methods, implementation and service delivery, and evaluating outcomes. It stresses the role of policy analysis as a political, and not just a technical, activity. Policy Analysis for Practice is an original, thought-provoking text with a strong applied focus. It offers: a systematic, accessible coverage of a wide-ranging literature; application to practical circumstances and the needs of people in the field; and, a direct relationship to vocational work in the management and administration of social services. It will be invaluable for students and practitioners in public policy, social policy and public sector management, in fields including central and local government, health and social care and the voluntary sector."

Policy Analysis of Child Labor: A Comparative Study.
Policy Analysis of Child Labor: A Comparative Study cover image Edited by Christiaan Grootaert and Harry Anthony Patrinos.
New York, NY: St. Martin's Press, 1999.
"The Policy Analysis of Child Labor examines the conditions which lead to child labor in Bolivia, Colombia, Côte d'Ivoire, and the Philippine and uses the findings to recommend a new policy approach toward its eradication. The researchers found that many children's days involve both work and schooling, so many of the current policy approaches, such as bans on child labor, are not optimal because they view child work and schooling as mutually exclusive alternatives. Instead, a gradual policy approach in two phases would be more effective. This policy would begin by increasing legal and social protection for working children and adding school time to child work routines, then would shift the work-school combination toward schooling only. Their policy also calls for joint provision of support to home enterprises and enrollment incentives--especially for girls. The Policy of Analysis of Child Labor is a meticulous study of a major human rights issue with far-reaching policy implications." (publisher's description)

The Politics of Adoption: International Perspectives on Law, Policy & Practice.
The Politics of Adoption cover image By Kerry O'Halloran.
Dordrecht, The Netherlands: Springer, 2006.
"The Politics of Adoption identifies and analyses the fundamental social and legal functions of adoption. It is a timely publication as across the world adoption law reform is now giving rise to contentious issues. The change process underway in England and Wales offers an opportunity and a perspective to explore areas of commonality and difference in the experience of other nations. It also provides a window through which to examine the presumption that within and between cultures there exists a common understanding of what is meant by adoption.
This book offers a comparative analysis of developments in the law, policy and practice of adoption in England and Wales, the US, Australia and Ireland. It explores the global phenomenon of intercountry adoption. The impact of the European Convention and other international legal instruments are assessed and the resulting implications for the future of adoption are considered. It suggests that the more 'open' experience of adoption in indigenous communities such as the Maori of New Zealand, the Aboriginal people of Australia and the Inuit of Canada challenges some of the basic assumptions underpinning adoption law in modern western nations."

Promoting the General Welfare: New Perspectives on Government Performance.
Promoting the General Welfare: New Perspectives on Government Performance cover image Edited by Alan S. Gerber and Eric M. Patashnik.
Washington, DC: Brookings Institution Press, ©2006.
"The U.S. Constitution calls on the federal government to 'promote the general welfare.' Promoting the General Welfare illustrates how and when American government fails to do so and all too frequently misses opportunities to promote the common good. But this innovative book also carries a more hopeful message. By identifying possible solutions to the problems created by weak incentives, poor information, and inadequate institutional capacity, it offers real solutions to improve government performance. Divided into three parts, the book first analyzes government performance in the areas of health, transportation, housing, and education and suggests why suboptimal policies often prevail. Next, it examines two novel and sometimes controversial tools available to improve policy design: information markets and laboratory experiments. Last, a series of chapters discusses how three key institutions--Congress, the party system, and federalism--affect government's ability to solve important social dilemmas. They also raise the disturbing possibility that recent political developments have made it more difficult to address and work out remedies." (publisher's description)

Rethinking Our War on Drugs: Candid Talk about Controversial Issues.
Rethinking Our War on Drugs cover image By Gary L. Fisher; foreword by William L. White.
Westport, CN: Praeger, ©2006.
"The National Drug Control Policy has failed its two major functions (supply reduction and demand reduction) due to faulty assumptions regarding nearly every aspect of the alcohol and drug fields, charges author Fisher. Yet in spite of overwhelming evidence of this failure policy makers have strongly resisted discussing major changes to the assumptions that underly current policy, because of political pressure, bias and philosophical intransigence, he adds. Fisher discusses controversial topics and defends uncommon approaches in chapters focused on subjects including legalization, harm reduction, the futility of supply reduction, the problem of underage drinking and effectiveness of treatment and prevention.
He proposes a new national policy for drug control, including elimination of the war' metaphor, inclusion of alcohol in the mandate, conceptualization of addiction as a public health problem, utilization of harm reduction principles to guide policy and discontinuation of approaches that isolate drug and alcohol problems from their connection to broader social issues such as poverty. In this work, the premises of the current National Drug Control Strategy are challenged, and both Democratic and Republican administrations across the last 10 years are critically examined. Statements of the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Strategy are critiqued. Major points include that there is no evidence the NDCS has achieved any of its goals, that harm reduction should be its guiding principle, and supply reduction should not be part of the national strategy."

Sport Policy: A Comparative Analysis of Stability and Change.
Sport Policy: A Comparative Analysis of Stability and Change cover image By Nils Asle Bergsgard, Barrie Houlihan. Per Mangset, Svein Ingve Nodland, and Hilmar Rommetvedt.
Oxford, England; Burlington, MA: Butterworth-Heinemann/Elsevier, 2007.
"Sport Policy: A Comparative Analysis of Stability and Change builds on the growing general interest in the comparative study of sport policy and the more specific interest in processes of policy change and issues associated with policy convergence.
In stark contrast to many other areas of public policy such as education, personal welfare and health care there is a paucity of theoretically informed comparative studies in sport. Over recent years there has been a steady increase in public investment in sport and frequently, as a consequence, a sharper debate about how public resources should be used. However, there has been little analysis of the factors that shape the generation of domestic sport policy and little attempt to identify the variables that might influence the policy process.
Sport Policy: A Comparative Analysis of Stability and Change provides a theoretically informed analysis of the sports systems in Canada, England, Germany and Norway. These economically advanced countries are carefully selected to enable the investigation of the significance of variables and because they share a number of socio-economic and sports-related characteristics, which provides the text with a unique breadth and depth of coverage. This text is a vital addition to the general paucity of literature in this area and is written by an internationally renowned author team." (publisher's description)

Understanding the Policy Process: Analysing Welfare Policy and Practice.
Understanding the Policy Process cover image By John Hudson and Stuart Lowe.
Bristol, UK: Policy Press, 2004.
"The post-industrial, twenty first century welfare state is very different from its predecessors. The heart of the Beveridge welfare state is under severe pressure as forces such as globalisation and technological progress call into question established beliefs about what governments can and should do. This book draws on the latest and best social science to explain how and why such policy change occurs. The book focuses on the policy making process as the key to change. It uses core concepts of policy analysis, one in each chapter, to build up a fully worked explanation of policy change and to equip readers with knowledge that can be applied to any aspect of welfare policy and public and social policy more generally. Understanding the policy process: introduces the main themes of the policy analysis literature; demonstrates the centrality of the policy making process to an understanding of the operational possibilities and limits of social policy; takes account of macro-, meso- and micro-level approaches to social policy analysis; uses clear explanations of key concepts, up-to-date illustrative case studies and examples to increase students' understanding of the theory and practice of policy analysis; is comparative in approach. This highly informative text is aimed at students of applied social science courses, their teachers, and those in social policy and politics departments in particular. Students who read it will understand the policy process more clearly, not just in theory but also in practice." (publisher's description)

Welfare Hot Buttons: Women, Work, and Social Policy Reform.
By Sylvia B. Bashevkin.
Toronto, Canada: University of Toronto Press; Pittsburgh, PA: University of Pittsburgh Press, 2002.
"Welfare Hot Buttons provides one of the first comprehensive assessments of contemporary social policy change in three Western countries: Canada, the United States, and Great Britain. Sylvia Bashevkin probes the fate of single mothers on social assistance during the period when three 'third way' political executives were in office--Bill Clinton (U.S.), Jean Chretian (Canada), and Tony Blair (Great Britain). She argues that, despite seemingly progressive campaign rhetoric, the social assistance policy realities under each of these three leaders were in crucial respects more punitive and restrictive than those of their neo-conservative predecessors in the 1980s."

Women's Health in Canada: Critical Perspectives on Theory and Policy.
Women's Health in Canada cover image Edited by Marina Morrow, Olena Hankivsky, and Colleen Varcoe.
Toronto, Canada: University of Toronto Press, ©2007.
"In recent years, healthcare professionals have recognized the distinctly different healthcare needs and concerns of men and women. Women's health, in particular, has come into its own in the last two decades. In Canada, however, there has been little available in the way of a general text on women's health. This volume works toward filling that gap by providing a resource for teaching and understanding women's health in this country.
To lay out the methodological and theoretical foundations for their study, editors Olena Hankivisky, Marina Morrow, and Colleen Varcoe bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars and practitioners from economics, anthropology, sociology, nursing, political studies, women's studies, and psychology. Contributors draw on the rich history of the Canadian women's health movement, providing analysis of that history and of the emergent theory, policy, and practice. Aimed at undergraduate and graduate students as well as practitioners, the collection adopts an intersectional approach, looking closely at social factors such as gender, race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, and gender identity, and analysing how they relate both to each other and to women's health. Connections between the social, economic, and cultural contexts of women's lives and their physical, spiritual, and mental well-being are a primary focus.
Providing a much needed resource for teachers, students, and practitioners of women's health in Canada, this comprehensive volume makes an important contribution to the literature." (publisher's description)

Youth, Crime, and Justice: A Global Inquiry.
Youth, Crime, and Justice: A Global Inquiry cover image By Clayton A. Hartjen.
Series: Critical Issues in Crime and Society Series.
New Brunswick, NJ: Rutgers University Press, ©2008.
"Close to half of the world's population is below the age of criminal jurisdiction in most countries. Many of these young people are living in poverty and under totalitarian regimes. Given their deprived and often abject circumstances, it is not surprising that many of them become involved in crime. In Youth, Crime, and Justice, Clayton A. Hartjen provides a broad overview of juvenile delinquency: how it manifests itself around the world and how societies respond to misconduct among their children. Taking a global, rather than country-specific approach, chapters focus on topics that range from juvenile laws and the correction of child offenders to the abuse, exploitation, and victimization of young people. Hartjen includes specific examples from the United States, Australia, Spain, Switzerland, New Zealand, Japan, India, Egypt, and elsewhere as he sorts through the various definitions of 'delinquent' and explores the differences in behavior that contribute to these classifications.
Most importantly, his in-depth and comparative look at judicial systems worldwide raises questions about how young offenders should be 'corrected' and how much fault can be laid on misbehaving youths acting out against the very societies that produced them.
This book: provides a global overview of youth crime, victimization, and juvenile justice; includes specific examples from the United States, Australia, Spain, Switzerland, New Zealand, Japan, India, Egypt, and elsewhere; and, is ideal for courses in delinquency and comparative criminal justice."
