Have the poor fared best by participating in conventional electoral politics or by engaging in mass defiance and disruption' The authors of the classic Regulating The Poor assess the successes and failures of these two strategies as they examine, in this provocative study, four protest movements of lower-class groups in 20th century America: -- The mobilization of the unemployed during the Great Depression that gave rise to the Workers' Alliance of America -- The industrial strikes that resulted in the formation of the CIO -- The Southern Civil Rights Movement -- The movement of welfare recipients led by the National Welfare Rights Organization.

Why Americans still don't vote : and why politicians want it that way by Frances Fox Piven( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why Americans Still Don't Vote takes the story up to the present. Analyzing the results of voter registration reform and drawing compelling historical parallels, Piven and Cloward reveal why neither of the major parties has made a concerted effort to appeal to the interests of the newly registered - and thus why Americans still don't vote."--Jacket
The breaking of the American social compact by Frances Fox Piven( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Piven and Cloward demonstrate that under the banner of "globalization," a mobilized American business class is driving down wages and benefits, breaking unions, weakening civil rights, and slashing programs that protect the disadvantaged - all at a time when income and wealth inequality has reached historic extremes. They argue that business elites' claim that ordinary people must make due with less because of the imperatives of the global markets is a hoax, and that the effort to dismantle the social compact should instead be understood as an ideologically powered political mobilization by business

Private social welfare's disengagement from the poor: the case of family adjustment agencies by Richard A Cloward( Book )

3 editions published between 1964 and 1965 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two possible explanations for the magnitude of the disengagement from the poor by private social work agencies are the concern the social work profession for its own status, which has led it to seek a more prestigious clientele, and the feeling that the psychological technology of social work is more amenable to middle-class than to lower-class socialization. One "conservative" explanation for the problems of the poor is that these problems arise out of personal rather than institutional deficiencies. The conservatives thus say that the poor cannot be helped because they do not recognize the causes of their problems. The authors conclude that conflict has arisen between the agencies and the poor because the poor see their problems as concrete and want direct service whereas the solidly middle-class agency is psychologically oriented and is prepared only to talk, not to provide physical solutions to problems. The result is that private agencies relieve themselves of the responsibility of helping the poor by referring them to already overburdened public agencies. A bibliography of 50 references lists pertinent works, many of which are discussed in the body of the paper in an historical overview of the activities of social work agencies from 1900 to 1960.
