Inhaltsangabe: The Collapse of Welfare Reform examines and compares a decade of welfare reform policy efforts in the United States and Canada, explaining the failure of each. While many scholars attribute differences in welfare policy to socioeconomic factors, Leman contends that political factors were responsible for these differences in the two countries under study. His is the only detailed and comparative recent work on public assistance policy and is one of the few book-length comparisons of the United States and Canada on any subject. It updates past discussions of U.S. welfare reform by discussing President Carter's Program for Better Jobs and Income as well as former President Nixon's Family Assistance Plan, and provides the most comprehensive account available of the Canadian Social Security Review and its aftermath.
The issues, data, and lessons presented in this book will interest political scientists, social workers, policy planners, and general readers who are involved in welfare assistance programs and issues.
"Professor Leman reveals a masterly grasp of the complexities of Canadian and American federalism, and of the manner in which the quite different central institutions of the two countries affect the style and substance of policy formation. He has produced a superb study of comparative policy-making in an area of public spending fraught with failure and frustration. Appearing at a time when Canadians and Americans are highly critical of their respective institutions, his book offers sobering insights to those who are prone to see greener grass on the other side of their common border."
—J. Stefan Dupré, Professor of Political Science, University of Toronto, and former William Lyon Mackenzie King Visiting Professor of Canadian Studies, Harvard University
