Description


This book, built on a study that explored the lived experiences of poverty and prosperity in the United Kingdom, examines both the material and symbolic significance of welfare austerity and its implications for social citizenship and equality. It combines vivid insights into the everyday lives, attitudes, and behaviors of the rich and the poor with a powerful argument that people living with welfare austerity lack the resources and means of collective identification to engage in sustained political struggle for their identity, rights, and recognition.
