Product Description

Review

"This book is about one important part of the growing precariat, those who have fallen out of old working-class communities. It should make people sad and angry. It is a great corrective to the utilitarian bias exhibited by mainstream politicians. It should be widely read." --Professor Guy Standing, author of The Precariat: The New Dangerous Class

"The book achieves its aims of providing a thorough insight into life at the foot of the contemporary labour market in a way that is sensitive and empathetic ... This is a good quality publication produced by a research team who between them have done much to increase understanding of the realities of working-class life." --Dr David M. Smith, Canterbury Christ Church University

Based on unique qualitative, life-history research with a hard-to-reach group of younger and older people, men and women, the book shows how poverty and insecurity have now become the defining features of working life for many. An illuminating read --London School of Economics Review of Books
