Summary
"Fifty years after Michael Harrington published his ... book The other America, in which he chronicled the lives of people excluded from the Age of Affluence, poverty in America is back with a vengeance. It is made up of both the long-term chronically poor and new working poor--the tens of millions of victims of a broken economy and an ever more dysfunctional political system. In many ways, for the majority of Americans, financial insecurity has become the new norm. [In his new book], Sasha Abramsky brings the effects of economic inequality out of the shadows and, ultimately, suggests ways for moving toward a fairer and more equitable social contract"--Provided by publisher
Summary
Delves into the stories of the struggling Americans behind poverty statistics and offers a course for putting the country back on a more economically just footing
