Reflecting the growing interest in social policy history, this book provides a penetrating examination of the development of social policy in the 20th-century America. An introductory chapter serving as an overview to the field is followed by seven original essays which explore the historical context for understanding the formulation, implementation, and administration of social policy. Robert Kelly's foreword discusses the growth of policy history in recent years. In his introduction Donald Critchlow argues that ""policy history"" encompasses historical reconstructions of development in particular social policy areas and attempts to make overall sense of policy-making processes. The chapters are presented in two sections. The first, Reconstructions of Policy Developments, includes W. Andrew Achenbaum's account of federal policies toward the aged since 1920; Brian Balogh's discussion of the emergence of the Social Security Board as a political actor, from 1935 to 1939; and Judith Sealander's examination of policy formation and women's issues between 1940 and 1980. In the second section, The Historical and Institutional Contexts of Policy-making, Morton Keller addresses social policy and the liberal state in 20th-century America; Jack L. Walker examines interests, political parties, and policy formation in the American democracy; and Edward Berkowitz concludes with an essay on social welfare and the American state. With studies representative of the best work in the historical analysis of social policy, this volume will be of interest to scholars in history, political science, and public policy, as well as to educated laymen seeking to understand social policy as it has emerged in modernAmerica. Donald T. Critchlow earned his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley and is professor of history at the University of Notre Dame.
