One of the fundamental issues confronting those who create,
analyze, or work within the framework of modern American social
welfare policy is the relationship of the family and the state in
the delivery of social care through social services. Dr. Moroney
develops the idea of the family as both recipient and dispenser of
social services. Simply and effectively he "paints the landscape"
with respect to American families. He focuses on two special cases:
families with frail elderly and families with severely mentally
handicapped children. The notion of shared responsibility between
the family and state, the nature of social welfare response through
government programs and the professional response of social workers
to families in need, and some of the dilemmas inherent in
formulating family policy in a multicultural, pluralistic society
