First of Its Kind

by GrandmaSusan on Dec 28, 2007

This book is quoted in every sociology textbook. It was one of the first books in its field. Certainly is is the one which has the most honest exposition of how poor people are treated in America, and it reviews the historical precedents by which policy decisions are still being made. I gave one copy of this book to my county commissioner, and one to my U.S. Congresswoman. In it, the authors preview their next book, Poor People's Movements, to which, by the way, I tried to give five stars, only this funky website wouldn't allow me. Both books are absolutely essential to the serious student of sociology
