Beschreibung

Using experiences of the white, English, working-classes in Manchester, this book explores the local frustrations with feeling 'ignored' and 'neglected' by the government through articulations of fairness.

'Katherine Smith's book is a deeply insightful, sometimes painfully-honest but always riveting ethnographic account of white working class experiences of fairness, racism and the transformation of urban Britain during the early years of the twenty first century.' - Alexander Smith, Lecturer in Sociology, University of Warwick, UK
