Losing Ground: American Social Policy 1950-1980

by Charles Murray
“A remarkable book . . .Charles Murray explains persuasively why, despite enormously increased expenditures on job training, welfare, food stamps, crime control, and education for the poor during the 1960’s and 70’s, the problems of the target populations – principally the black poor—became worse. He deduces rules to explain the failure, and proposes on the basis of them some awesome shifts in our social policies. Everyone concerned with these issues will have to deal with the arguments of this book.”—Nathan Glazer, Harvard University
