America's Struggle Against Poverty in the Twentieth Century by James T. Patterson
Book DescriptionThis new edition of Patterson's widely used book carries the story of battles over poverty and social welfare through what the author calls the "amazing 1990s", those years of extraordinary performance of the economy. He explores a range of issues arising from the economic phenomenon - increasing inequality and demands for use of an improved poverty definition. He focuses the story on the impact of the highly controversial welfare reform of 1996, passed by a Republican Congress and signed by a Democratic President Clinton, despite the laments of anguished liberals.

Freedom is Not Enough, Paperback (April 2012)
"A concise and judicious account of Mr. Moynihan's political career, the report he made famous and the policy debates that the report inspired...Freedom Is Not Enough is written in an engaging style that makes these debates come alive again and that reminds us of their continuing importance."--Wall Street Journal
