This book explores the motivations to reform the welfare system during the most prosperous decade in recent U.S. history and the successes and failures thus far. It examines major welfare reform by acknowledging the incipient reform efforts of the late 1980's, which made way for the 90's movement to get people "off of welfare rolls" and provide a "hand up, not a hand out."
