What happens when you end welfare as we know it?

Christopher Jencks, the chair of my PhD committee, has a review in the NYRB of Jason DeParle’s American Dream: Three Women, Ten Kids, and a Nation’s Drive to End Welfare. He calls it "by far the best book about welfare reform that I have read". Since Jencks has been one of America’s leading thinkers on social policy for the past 30 years, that’s high praise indeed. The first chapter is online. I think I’ll buy myself a copy.
