A History of Social Work and Social Policy in the United States
Author: John H. Ehrenreich
Publisher: Cornell University Press
Social work and social policy in the United States have always had a complex and troubled relationship. In The Altruistic Imagination, John H. Ehrenreich offers a critical interpretation of their intertwined histories, seeking to understand the problems that face these two vital institutions in American society. Ehrenreich demonstrates that the emphasis of social work has always vacillated between individual treatment and social reform. Tracing this ever-changing focus from the Progressive Era, through the development of the welfare state, the New Deal, and the affluent 1950s and 1960s, into the administration of Ronald Reagan, he places the evolution of social work in the context of political, cultural, and ideological trends, noting the paradoxes inherent in the attempt to provide essential services and reflect at the same time the intentions of the state. He concludes by examining the turning point faced by the social work profession in the 1980s, indicated by a return to casework and a withdrawal from social policy concerns.

"Security Based Approach to Development" (SBA) is a new vision to development by addressing security and development issues simultaneously. It merges the global security issues with the "Rights Based" and "Needs Based" approaches. The book provides an in-depth analysis of Identity and Power. In today's context identity and security issues are two sides of the coin. SBA has recognized the issue of 'personal identification' as a pre-requisite to empowerment. Analysis attributes the deteriorating law-and-order, rigged elections, corruption, socioeconomic disparity, harboring of terrorists, lack of transparency and poor governance to lack of personal identification systems. The book stresses that unless the development investments and insecurity issues are addressed simultaneously the global development agenda will be further delayed.
