About this title


Gilliatt (political sociology and political thought, U. of Northumbria, UK) first surveys the status of coping in social theory. He then introduces the poorer sections of society forced to regularly engage in coping and argues that they are neither naturally weak nor incapacitated, based on a critical examination of the debates concerned with the "culture of poverty" and the "underclass." He elaborates on the nature of the coping practices evolved over time for survival of poverty. Subsequent chapters address rational choice behavior, discuss how far coping practices contribute to upholding or challenging capitalist social and economic relations, and critically assess the work of J. C. Scott. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
