Summary
"The "cultures" of unemployed people in the United States and abroad are complex, varied, and offer explanatory power when analyzed, as they are here, in a systematic way. The authors use case studies and survey data to devise a framework for a better understanding of the effects of welfare state policy on the chronically unemployed. They analyze the personal and political worlds behind the social behavior of the unemployed in connection with the generative mechanisms behind the welfare state. Comparing the results of this study with important ethnographic studies conducted in the United States provides unique insight into the differences and similarities between the American welfare state and the Netherlands, a highly developed European welfare state. A Foreword by U.S. scholar William Julius Wilson emphasizes the universality of the method and findings presented here."--Jacket
