The poorhouse state; the American way of life on public assistance by Richard M Elman( Book )

13 editions published between 1966 and 1968 in English and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Poorhouse State charges that American welfare programs create and perpetuate the poverty they set out to alleviate. Using the 'welfare ghetto' of New York's Lower East Side as a point of departure for an examination of nationwide attitudes, Mr. Elman show how adequate, grudging, and finally degrading our welfare policies are. He postulates the kind of radical changes that will have to take place before any amount of 'retraining' or 'rehabilitation' for poor people in America will even approach success. This book is both a devastating, documented report on what does on behind the official doors of our public assistance programs, and a series of moving portraits of Americans who receive public assistance and how they live."--Back cover
