520    The American welfare state has long been a source of 
       political contention and academic debate. This Oxford 
       Handbook pulls together much of our current knowledge 
       about the origins, development, functions, and challenges 
       of American social policy. After the Introduction, the 
       first substantive part of the handbook offers an 
       historical overview of U.S. social policy from the 
       colonial era to the present. This is followed by a set of 
       chapters on different theoretical perspectives available 
       for understanding and explaining the development of U.S. 
       social policy. The three following parts of the volume 
       focus on concrete social programs for the elderly, the 
       poor and near-poor, the disabled, and workers and 
       families. Policy areas covered include health care, 
       pensions, food assistance, housing, unemployment benefits,
       disability benefits, workers' compensation, family support,
       and programs for soldiers and veterans. The final part of 
       the book focuses on some of the consequences of the U.S. 
       welfare state for poverty, inequality, and citizenship. 
       Many of the chapters comprising this handbook emphasize 
       the disjointed patterns of policy making inherent to U.S. 
       policymaking and the public-private mix of social 
       provision in which the government helps certain groups of 
       citizens directly (e.g., social insurance) or indirectly 
       (e.g., tax expenditures, regulations). The contributing 
       authors are experts from political science, sociology, 
       history, economics, and other social sciences. --Provided
