Summary "Public policy in the United States is marked by a contradiction between the American ideal of equality and the reality of an underclass of marginalized and disadvantaged people who are widely viewed as undeserving and incapable. Deserving and Entitled provides a close inspection of many different policy arenas showing how the use of power and the manipulation of images have made it appear both natural and appropriate that some target populations benefit from policy, while others do not."--Jacket.
