Review of Evaluation and Accountability in Human Service Programs. Edited by William C. Sze and June G. Hopps. Cambridge, Mass.: Schenkman Publishing Co., 1974

Mullen, Edward Joseph

As the 1960s drew to a close a climate of reappraisal characterized the disciplines
involved in human service planning and evaluation. Evaluation and
Accountability in Human Service Programs is an expression of this reappraisal,
and it provides an excellent glimpse into the current diversity of expert opinion
regarding the reasons for the difficulties encountered by program
evaluators as well as suggestions for future directions. The book is the product
of a symposium sponsored by the Ohio State University School of Social
Work and contains the symposium's papers and commentaries organized into
four major sections. Its nineteen contributors include seasoned and distinguished
scholars. While much of the material duplicates analysis and recommendations
already available in the evaluation literature and often authored
by these same contributors, a number of the papers represent new contributions.
