This is the first textbook that embeds policy practice and policy advocacy in multiple policy sectors (health, child welfare, mental health, education, safety net, and gerontology). It transforms policy from the encyclopedic qualities of some competing policy-sector texts by providing tools for social worker students to engage in advocacy at multiple levels.

Should a BSW or MSW program have only one course in social policy, the book will provide a good and solid basis at understanding basic social policy and advocacy strategies. The social work student will emerge from the course with a plethora of basic knowledge of social welfare policy issues and fundamental advocacy tools.-- Joseph Wronka, Springfield College
Jansson's use of six cross-cutting problems gives each student a systematic way of considering their own role in engaging in policy advocacy at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels.-- Joyce Lee Taylor, Springfield College
This is an outstanding textbook that provides essential information for practice of policy intervention. -- Jitendra Kapoor, Alabama A&M University
