The Poor and the Hard-Core Unemployed: Recommendations for New Approaches.
Smith, Wil J., Ed.
This interdisciplinary conference was intended to make employment service personnel in two Appalachian states more aware of the social and psychological aspects of poverty and the training and employment needs of the poor. Papers are included by Robert J. Lampman, Frank H. Cassell, Louis A. Ferman, Charles C. Killingsworth, Robert C. Couthorn, and Gerald Gurin. Although the conference deliberately included divergent views on the solutions to poverty problems, all the authors share the belief that both institutions and the poor must change, and that a healthy economy is vital to the war on poverty.
