In the 1960s, the Johnson administration, through its Great Society programs, embarked on a journey to end poverty in America--failing dismally. Now, in The Color of Welfare, Jill Quadagno argues that Johnson's War on Poverty failed because it became entangled with the civil rights movement--triggering a white backlash that stymied social programs.
