I'm taking a Sociology course and this book was extremely helpful on what my group needed to research. Our final project hypothesis is that unemployment causes neighborhood destabilization. If you have a similar project that you're going to be working on for school I would highly recommend this book. It's also great for any discussion on unemployment and the kind of individualistic society we live in. It focuses a lot on the evils of blaming people instead of a broken system and putting to bed the myth of "pulling yourself up by the bootstraps." The last chapter had some really great insights and ideas about how to handle unemployment and what we can do to help the working class poor. Great read! Highly recommended for anyone doing any kind of research on unemployment.
