Lost ground : welfare reform, poverty, and beyond ( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 599 libraries worldwide
Global economic competition is lowering economic expectations in the developed world, just as it is further improverishing less developed countries. The end of the welfare state - in all its various incarnations from China to the UK and North America - is a key element of globalization. Lost Ground: Welfare Reform, Poverty, and Beyond analyzses U.S. welfare reform in the context of larger political shifts, including the end of the family wage, the sexual revolution, and the rise of black liberation, feminism, and multiculturalism. The core messags embodied in welfare reform are ones that speak powerfully and frighteningly to the questions of who we are as a nation and what we think about women, people of color, poor and near-poor families. [The contributors to Lost Ground argue that] if society truly valued all the work of "single moms," then it would have the best chance of taking care of all families, and of both reducing economic inequality and recognizing the caregiving work that is, and must be, done for society to thrive

Reforming welfare, redefining poverty ( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 413 libraries worldwide
Overview: "The overall purpose of this volume is to present welfare reform in the context of a bigger set of political, economic, and policy shifts and to examine how it forces us to reconceptualize poverty and antipoverty policies as well as to rethink the possibilities and limits of the U.S. welfare state. Since those most affected by welfare are single mothers, communities of color, and poor families, we also consider welfare changes in light of how they both mask and reveal gender, race, and class relations in the United States. In short, we think that the arguments here make the case for ending welfare reform as we know it. They provide part of a vision for a more dependable and responsive state, assuming that a democratic social movement must also be part of ending the economic and political bases for poverty. "- From the preface by Randy Albelda and Ann Withhorn. There has always been a storm of controversy regarding welfare in America, and for that matter, on a global level. Who should qualify, under what guidelines, and how and in what form should compensation be delivered? This issue of The Annals takes a long, hard, and sometimes hypercritical look at the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) and the present state of welfare in America. While not raising the banner for a return to the past, there is presented the postulation that the present welfare situation is inefficiently attending to people in need, particularly along gender and racial lines. Under an ever widening gap between the haves and have-nots in the United States, and the world at large, many world governments are bent to define as an integral remedy, a globalized economy. That concept is taken at issue as seriously flawed and the authors attempt to dissect the more salient problems, in that poverty and any welfare system that supports it, or the lack thereof, is far more complex than can be solved merely by higher gross national product. The many facets of poverty and its effect on class relationships, race, gender, families, single mothers, children and individual rights, are explored and examined to capture an expanding range of critical issues and provide scholarly and crucial commentary to the quality of human existence as well as the political and global necessities that demand a second opinion as to whether we as a country, and the world at large, are "doing the right thing" for people in crisis

Economics & feminism : disturbances in the field by Randy Pearl Albelda( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 282 libraries worldwide
In Economics and Feminism: Disturbances in the Field, Albelda examines the characteristics of economics that have made it almost impervious to feminism. She finds that the dominance of neoclassical economic theory since the 1970s has made the field especially resistant to dissension. Any field overwhelmingly governed by a single paradigm is naturally less open to challenging points of view. Moreover, the theory claims to promote value free analysis, rejecting approaches that assert gender bias. Albelda's study is the first to critically examine the marginal impact of feminism on economics. She explores the history of feminism and economics with surprising resultsnamely that women were better represented in the profession in the 1920s than they were in the early 1970s. Albelda also looks to the future, pointing to some signs that feminists and feminism are beginning to influence economics and that they may be an important catalyst in the revitalization of the field. Albelda presents her material in accessible prose that is appropriate to her audience of both feminists and economists. This study provides the first thorough investigation into the lack of a feminist perspective in this field that is so important to the shaping of policy in America. Albelda's original research and authoritative analysis will make a lasting contribution to both feminist and economic scholarship
