Judith A. Levine at ASA

Greetings from the American Sociological Association’s Annual Meeting in New York! At left, Judith A. Levine poses at the UC Press booth with her new book, Ain’t No Trust, which explores issues of trust and distrust among low-income women in the U.S.—at work, around childcare, in their relationships, and with caseworkers—and presents richly detailed evidence from in-depth interviews about our welfare system and why it’s failing the very people it is designed to help. Levine was recently interviewed by NBC News about her thesis that distrust perpetuates inequality.
