Product Description:

The recent radical cutbacks of the welfare state in the United Kingdom have kept poverty and income management at the heart of intellectual public and policy discourse. This innovative book adds to that conversation taking as its focus the role and significance of family in the context of poverty and low-income conditions. Based on a micro-level study carried out in 2011 and 2012 with fifty-one families in Northern Ireland it draws from fresh empirical evidence to offer a new theorization of the relationship between family life and poverty. Different chapters explore such topics as parenting the management of money family support and local engagement. Together they detail the practices of constructing and managing family life and relationships in circumstances of poverty making this book of interest to a wide readership including policy makers.
