Poverty Propaganda: Exploring the Myths

by Tracy Shildrick - £23.99  Policy Press (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781447323983 | ISBN 10: 144732398x

Does ‘real’ poverty still exist in Britain? How do people differentiate between the supposed ‘deserving’ and ‘undeserving’ poor? Is there a culture of worklessness passed down from generation to generation? Bringing together historical and contemporary material, Poverty Propaganda: Exploring the Myths sheds new light on how poverty is understood in contemporary Britain.
 
The book debunks many popular myths and misconceptions about poverty and its prevalence, causes and consequences. In particular, it highlights the role of ‘poverty propaganda’ in sustaining class divides in perpetuating poverty and disadvantage in contemporary Britain.
