A War on Poverty Program: Its conflicts and Collapse
Bridgeland, William
Urban Life, 4, 1, 79-98, Apr 75
Utilizing primarily interview data, one midwestern War on Poverty agency is examined with respect to the alternative, often conflicting ways it was perceived by various types of program participants and interested observers. The relationship of the local agency with the Office of Economic Opportunity is surveyed, reasons for conflict both within and outside the agency are analyzed, and factors responsible for its collapse are isolated.
