No Car, No Radio, No Liquor Permit examines the history of single mothers on welfare in Ontario, from the establishment of the Ontario Mothers' Allowance in 1920 to the elimination of the policy under the Harris government in 1997. Through the use of government documents, case files, and oral interviews, the book shows how single mothers throughout history have opened their homes and their lives to intrusive investigations to prove themseleves financially and morally worthy.
