Book summary

This powerful account draws on research by sociologists and economists to reveal the depth of the poverty crisis, analyzing why such "invisible" citizens as the elderly, children, and minorities are not given adequate opportunities. Originally published in 1962, Harrington's classic work on the plight of the poor in the midst of plenty remains all too relevant today. [via]
