Publisher: New York University Press | ISBN: 0814736580 | edition 2004 | PDF | 210 pages | 1,03 mb
"Brilliantly conceived and executed. . .[A] stunning work of public policy that, if embraced, could radically change 'welfare'—and America—as we know it."
—Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination "[A] challenging and disturbing account of the impact of stereotypes in politics. Anyone interested in the means by which the poor, the unpopular, and the alienated are kept from participating in politics to demand better treatment should read this book."
—Frank R. Baumgartner, coauthor of Agendas and Instability in American Politics
Ange-Marie Hancock argues that longstanding beliefs about poor African American mothers were the foundation for the contentious 1996 welfare reform debate that effectively "ended welfare as we know it." By examining the public identity of the so-called welfare queen and its role in hindering democratic deliberation, The Politics of Disgust shows how stereotypes and politically motivated misperceptions about race, class and gender were effectively used to instigate a politics of disgust.
The ongoing role of the politics of disgust in welfare policy is revealed here by using content analyses of the news media, the 1996 congressional floor debates, historical evidence and interviews with welfare recipients themselves. Hancock's incisive analysis is both compelling and disturbing, suggesting the great limits of today's democracy in guaranteeing not just fair and equitable policy outcomes, but even a fair chance for marginalized citizens to participate in the process.
