'A timely and welcome attempt to make a public debate about enforced austerity and amplified entitlements. Drawing on substantive research findings from experts across a wide range of fields, the book is essential reading for those who want to understand what is really happening at the moment. It reveals how it is not just the economy and politics that are being radically reshaped but people's hopes, desires and futures.' - Beverley Skeggs, Professor of Sociology, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK
'Everyone wondered whether the 'Big Society', was just the latest example of political gesturing, blaming the poor for their poverty and suggesting that only those with the time and money to provide their own services deserve them? Are you, your friends and neighbours at risk of been duped into thinking that working-class communities in Britain are 'broken' and in need of punitive intervention? Then read Class Inequality in Austerity Britain: Power, Difference and Suffering.' - Danny Dorling, Professor of Human Geography, University of Sheffield, UK
