Putting Faith in Partnerships addresses a major conceptual change in American domestic policy, begun by Reagan and now fully realized by the Bush administration: the shift of responsibility for social services from the federal government to statesMorePutting Faith in Partnerships addresses a major conceptual change in American domestic policy, begun by Reagan and now fully realized by the Bush administration: the shift of responsibility for social services from the federal government to states and communities.In this groundbreaking study of a politically controversial topic---the debut offering in Alan Wolfes Contemporary Political and Social Issues series---author Stephen Monsma avoids overheated rhetoric in favor of a careful, critical analysis of the hard evidence on whether public-private partnerships really work.The book is based on in-depth studies of social service programs in Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Dallas.

By examining public-private partnerships between government offices and nonprofit organizations, Monsma seeks to understand how these partnerships affect the balance between governments efforts to deal with social problems and the rights of individual citizens to control their own lives.Putting Faith in Partnerships answers many previously unanswered questions in what may be the most controversial public policy debate today: about the feasibility and wisdom of government agencies forming partnerships with private organizations to provide essential public social services.Stephen V.

Monsma is Professor of Political Science at Pepperdine University. He has served as director of the Office of Quality Review in Michigans Department of Social Services and is a widely recognized expert on the role of faith-based organizations in social service programs.
