Abstract

Persistence of poverty amidst plenty is a characteristic of advanced capitalist societies. In the UK most of the disadvantaged live in towns and cities, where, despite half a century of the welfare state, poverty and deprivation remain serious problems for people and places marginal to the capitalist development process. This research employs data from successive national Censuses of Population to map the changing geography of disadvantage in the post-industrial city of Glasgow. The findings provide insight into the effectiveness of past anti-deprivation strategies, and signpost areas for future action.
