about this item

The topic of poverty and the poor frequently arises in political conversations, but it’s rarely defined clearly, let alone closely analyzed so that we can understand what poverty actually is and what it means for those who endure it. This book aims to demystify poverty, asking key questions about its prevalence in contemporary Britain, the regular invocation of a distinction between the so-called deserving and undeserving poor, and misconceptions about cultures of poverty and joblessness. Rooted in data and written in straightforward, accessible language, Poverty Propaganda debunks myths so that we can begin to address poverty, and its causes and consequences, more seriously and effectively.
