This course will explore the historical development, political theories, economics, and policies of the American welfare state.

While we will certainly pay attention to issues of poverty and public assistance programs, our focus will by no means be restricted to them. Rather we want to explore the welfare state in its broadest terms, which would include general employment policies, education, child care and health care.
