In this accessible and inspiring analysis” (Angela Glover Blackwell), lifelong antipoverty advocate Peter Edelman assesses how the United States can have such an outsized number of unemployed and working poor despite important policy gains. He delves into what is happening to the people behind the statistics and takes a particular look at young people of color for whom the possibility of productive lives is too often lost on the way to adulthood. In a timely new introduction, Edelman discusses the significance of Obama’s reelection-including the rediscovery of the word poverty”-as well as the continuing attack on the poor from the right.
Engaging and informative” (William Julius Wilson), powerful and eloquent” (Wade Henderson), a national treasure composed by a wise man” (George McGovern), and a great source for summaries of our country’s antipoverty program” (Publishers Weekly), So Rich, So Poor is crucial reading for anyone who wants to understand the most critical American dilemma of the twenty-first century.
