About this book

Offering a comparative perspective, this book examines working poverty - those in work who are still classified as 'poor'. It argues that the growth in numbers of working poor in Europe is due to the transition from a Keynesian Welfare State to a 'post-fordist' model of production.

Reviews

'Recommended' - CHOICE

'The crosscutting themes offer valuable insights, particularly with regard to mobility into and out of working poverty and the position of women. The chapters being written in the form of articles and therefore readable separately as well as together, readers may choose to select only the parts most interesting to them.' CLR News

'This comprehensive and thoroughly-researched book quite rightly offers no simple political programme for the reduction of in-work poverty. What it does offer is a sense of the complexity of this policy field, and a source of information and properly tentative conclusions which anyone attempting to develop policy in the field really ought to read.' - Citizen's Income Trust
