Class Struggle and Social Welfare by Gerry Mooney

Book Description

For too long the collective struggles of the oppressed over welfare provision and welfare settlement have been ignored, yet such struggles punctuate recent British history. By presenting a series of case-studies of episodes of collective action from the field of social policy and social welfare, Class Struggle and Welfare aims to rediscover this 'hidden history'. Organised chronologically, the book covers some of the most important welfare struggles from the early nineteenth century, some of the issues covered are: *the growth of capitalism *the development of the poor laws and the anti-poor law movement *working class self-help welfare in the nineteenth century *rent strikes on the Clyde in 1920s *the squatters movement in the 1950s *the struggle for abortion rights *an analysis of the urban riots in the 1980s *the great poll tax rebellion.

Books By Author Gerry Mooney

Criminal Justice in Scotland by Gerry Mooney Criminal Justice in Scotland, Paperback (December 2010)

Offers a critically informed analysis and understanding of crime and criminal justice in contemporary Scotland. This book considers the extent to which Scottish crime and criminal justice is being affected both by devolution as well as the wider pressures resulting from globalization, Europeanisation and different patterns of migration.

Community by Gerry Mooney Community, Paperback (December 2008)

The concept of community is among the most contested of social science ideas. This book offers an examination of the concept's ability to represent the notion of collective well-being and positive social relations and to denote a description or categorisation of social problems and 'problem populations'.
