Robert Cherry's New Book on Welfare Reform

Oxford University Press has just published Robert Cherry's new book on welfare reform, Welfare Transformed. The book has already been praised by those who are left of center as well as Ron Haskins who was the Republican point person on welfare reform in the 1990s and was a Bush appointee as well.

In addition, Bob tells me that he has just come out with a book, Rethinking Poles and Jews: Troubled Past, Brighter Future, published by Rowman & Littlefield. The Polish embassy is paying for a Polish translation.

Robert Cherry, who is my colleague and friend at Brooklyn College, is an imaginative and creative scholar, and I am looking forward to reading both of his books.
