Protecting Soldiers and Mothers: The Political Origins of Social Policy in United States: Political Origins of Social Policy in the United States (Inglés) Tapa blanda – 5 abr 1995
Descripción del producto
A monumental study that will likely become a classic in the history of the modern welfare state. -- Rosalind Rosenberg New York Times Book Review Complex, richly detailed...and grounded in extensive archival research...[Skocpol] has demonstrated that the polity and political institutions do matter...[A] powerful book that will surely generate a great deal of new research and writing about the history of social provision in the United States. -- Alex Keyssar Nation Invites readers to remember a halcyon period in women's politics when--both in spite and because of women's formal political exclusion--extensively organized, politically active women united around motherhood and claimed a place for women in social policy. -- Gwendolyn Mink Women's Review of Books Recognition that a kind of welfare state emerged even in America has hardly stilled the need to ask, once again, why the American variant came out so differently from those in western Europe. Skocpol's newest book... brings to these issues as powerful and iconoclastic an intellect as the historical sciences possess. Protecting Soldiers and Mothers belongs on a shelf of social policy history classics. -- Daniel T. Rodgers Journal of Economic History Protecting Soldiers and Mothers is doubly important because it gives us new facts to think about and new perspectives within which to think about them...Skocpol's research is so original and thorough and her critical intelligence is so strong...that her book will become the necessary starting point for all who study the evolution of social welfare policies in the United States. -- Aaron Wildavsky Journal of Policy History
Reseña del editor
It is widely held that the United States lagged behind the countries of Western Europe in developing modern social policies. But, as Theda Skocpol shows in this new historical analysis, the United States actually pioneered generous social spending for many of its elderly, disabled and dependent citizens. Theda Skocpol's previous works include the prize-winning "States and Social Revolutions".Ver Descripción del producto

At times this book can make for dull reading, and it is perhaps also longer than necessary. However, it remains an important work of social history.
