Summary
Edelman (law, Georgetown U.) presents a succinct overview of the problem of wealth inequality in the United States. He addresses four major points: why poverty persists in spite of programs like the New Deal and Great Society, race and gender among the extreme poor, the connection between poverty and riches, and the need for civic action as well as policy action. In seven short chapters, he provides a snapshot of our current mess and considers the limited success of antipoverty programs, the persistence of poverty, economic shifts that created a low-wage economy, holes in the safety-net, the concentration of poverty and its multiplying effect, and child development. A conclusion points to new directions and sites of reinvigorated engagement. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
