Attitudes of the Poor and Attitudes Toward the Poor; An Annotated Bibliography, Supplement I.
Cameron, Colin, Comp.; And Others
This annotated bibliography is a supplement to one published in 1975. It contains similar information and is organized in almost the same fashion. A few categories were added, and a comparison of the two tables of contents will reveal the differences. The first section examines the attitudes of the poor. Some of the areas specifically dealt with are the following: (1) aspects of the life style that affect attitudes of the poor, (2) attitudes of the poor toward welfare, (3) attitudes toward other classes, (4) attitudes about the future, fate, and destiny, (5) attitudes about antipoverty programs, (6) attitudes of disadvantaged students, of minority group members, of blue collar workers, of poor women, of the aged, and (7) attitudes of the poor about topics such as race, politics, legal aid, and health care. The second section deals with attitudes toward the poor. Specifically, some of the topics included are: (1) attitudes toward the poor as welfare recipients, (2) attitudes toward the nonworking poor and toward the working poor, (3) attitudes toward minorities, (4) attitudes of employers, co-workers and managers toward the poor, and (5) prejudice and toleration. The third section deals with changing attitudes. The fourth section deals with related citations, and the fifth section deals with measuring attitudes and gauging public opinion about the poor. Survey research centers, polls, and public opinion centers are covered in the sixth section, while the last section presents sources of ongoing information and bibliographies. (Author/AM)
