- DescriptionSince taking power in 2010, the Coalition Government has pushed through a drastic programme of cuts to public spending in the name of austerity. This timely book by journalist Mary O'Hara chronicles the real-world effects of austerity, showing just what it means to ordinary lives. With an updated Afterword by the author, the book offers a compelling corrective to narratives of shared sacrifice.
