Attitudes of the Poor and Attitudes Toward the Poor: An Annotated Bibliography.
Cameron, Colin, Comp.
The stated purpose of this compilation is to gather together some of the more commonly obtainable works from books, journals, and dissertations, as well as newspaper reports. In addition, where possible, abstracts are stated to be used to describe the material cited. This compilation includes a subject and author index. It is noted that the controversial concept of "culture of poverty" or "poverty of culture" is not explored in detail. However, a limited attempt is considered to be made to present certain relevant citations to literature on information revolving around the factors contributing to the psychological world of the poor and what makes them think as they do. In that section, it is stated, an attempt is made to select some of the books and articles that illuminate not only some of the elements of the everyday lives of the poor that influence the formation of their attitudes., but also those that highlight their psychological state. In this bibliography an attempt is considered to be made to bring together a number of pertinent citations to the more scholarly literature of recent vintage, especially since 1965. The cutoff date for inclusion is the latter part of 1973 for most works; however, when information is available about forthcoming publications of note, some of the most outstanding are stated to be also included.
