Margaret: This one is used a lot here, but it's not much more recent --

Title: Poverty, welfare and America's families <videorecording> :
a hard look ; produced by Cecily Coleman Prior ; directed by Dan Hattal.
Published/Produced: Washington, D.C. : National Commission on Children,
Contents: The economic squeeze on families with children
-- Welfare and beyond -- Alternatives to welfare: children's tax
credits -- Alternatives to welfare: ensuring child support.

Let me know if you want to know where we bought it.

We have more recent titles, but they don't present an overview; they go
in-depth into one aspect -- like poor Latino children (_The Culture of
Poverty_). -- Kris
