Product Overview

Poole challenges that basic assumption that the relationship between welfare and racial inequality is a fight between liberal and conservative forces. Reconstructing the behind-the-scenes politicking that gave birth to the 1935 Social Security Act, Poole demonstrates that segregation was built into the very foundation of the welfare state because white policy makers--both liberal and conservative--shared an interest in preserving white race privilege. She argues that the liberal framers of the Act elevated the status of Unemployment Insurance and Social Security--and the white workers that they were designed to serve--by differentiating them from welfare programs, which served black workers.
