Item description for Cultures of Unemployment: A Comparative Look at Long-Term Unemployment and Urban Poverty (Amsterdam University Press - Amsterdam Archaeological Studies) by Godfried Engbersen, Kees Schuyt, Jaap Timmer & Frans van Waarden...
Using extensive case studies and survey data, this study addresses questions related to the "cultures" of unemployment. The authors use their research results to devise a framework for the cultural analysis of unemployment and the welfare state both in the US and abroad. The book claims that the state shares responsibility with the unemployed for problem policies as well as solutions. This is as true in the Dutch case studies forming the heart of this volume as it is in the US comparisons that are drawn.
