Part 1 Economics and incomes: the inner city in the world economy; from rags to tatters - the agony of an industry; modernization by destruction - the death of a factory; death by a thousand cuts - working in the public sector; the idle poor - unemployment and inequality; youth on the dole; the modern poor law - social security; into the whirlwind - financial crisis. Part 2 Private need and public squalor: the inverse-care law; I'll blow your house down; unfreedom of choice - council housing; the inner city's inner city - the dump estates; from cure to crisis intervention - social services and health; hard times to grow old in; schooling for failure. Part 3 Tensions and conflicts: the divisiveness of deprivation; growing up nasty; criminals and their victims; the roughest beat - policing the inner city; brother shall strike brother - race and class; if you're small, the walk all over you - poverty and power. Conclusion: myths, realities and possibilities.
Responsibility: Paul Harrison.
