9780335215980: Work, Consumerism and the New Poor (Issues in Society)

From one of today's most eminent thinkers--a piercing examination of poverty in the modern age

If "being poor" once derived its meaning from the condition of being unemployed, today it draws its meaning primarily from the plight of a flawed consumer. This distinction truly makes a difference in the way poverty is experienced and in the chances to redeem its misery.

This absorbing book traces this change, and makes an inventory of its social consequences. It also considers ways of fighting back advancing poverty and mitigating its hardships, and tackles the problems of poverty in its present form.

The new edition features:

  • Up-to-date coverage of the progress made by key thinkers in the field
  • A discussion of recent work on redundancy, disposability, and exclusion
  • Explorations of new theories of workable solutions to poverty

Students of sociology, politics, and social policy will find this to be an invaluable text on the changing significance and implications of an enduring social problem.

Descripción OPEN UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Reviewers comments on the first edition: Zygmunt Bauman presents a cogently argued and compelling thesis.an important book from a distinguished scholar, that adds a new dimension to the poverty debate - British Journal of Sociology . It will be of great interest and value to students, teachers and researchers in sociology and social policy! [Bauman] provides a very forceful and sophisticated statement of the case; and a very well written one too. As a wide ranging analysis of our present discontents it is an admirable example of the sort of challenge which sociology at its best can offer to us and our fellow citizens to re-assess and re-think our current social arrangements - Work, Employment and Society . This is a stylish and persuasive analysis of the transition between the age of the society of producers to that of the society of consumers - Political Studies.It is one thing to be poor in a society of producers and universal employment; it is quite a different thing to be poor in a society of consumers, in which life projects are built around consumer choices rather than on work, professional skills or jobs.Where being poor was once linked to being unemployed, today it draws its meaning primarily from the plight of a flawed consumer. This has a significant effect on the way living in poverty is experienced and on the prospects for redeeming its misery. Work, Consumerism and the New Poor traces this change over the duration of modern history. It makes an inventory of its social consequences, and considers how effective different ways of fighting poverty and relieving its hardships are.The new edition of this seminal work features: updated coverage of key thinkers in the field; discussion of recent work on redundancy, disposability and exclusion; and, current thinking on the effects of capital flows on different countries and the changes on the shop floor through, for example, business process re-engineering; and, new material on security and vulnerability. It is a key reading for students and lecturers in sociology, politics and social policy, and those with an interest in contemporary social issues. Nº de ref. de la librería AA39780335215980
