In this completely revised and updated second edition of Health and Welfare for Families in the 21st Century, leaders in the maternal and child health field analyze the revolutionizing effect of changes occurring today in the social, educational, political, and economic aspects of family health care.

This authoritative collection of readings provides a basic overview of the health and social welfare systems, and the policy and insurance infrastructure surrounding those systems. In this edition a major emphasis is placed on the effect of managed care on these systems and the effect of new legislation on families and children. A variety of public health topics are also addressed, with a focus on present and emerging challenges, including suggested strategies for the future.

This vitally important new book is for students and educators in graduate schools of public health, nursing, social work, nutrition, allied health, medicine, and health policy professionals in health or political professions.
