Worlds Apart: Why Poverty Persists in Rural America
SIAS Faculty Book Gallery
  • Cynthia Duncan, University of Washington Tacoma
Description
In this compelling book, Cynthia Duncan examines the nature of poverty by listening to the stories of real people in remote rural areas of the United States. A persistent inequality characterizes two communities she describes, but in another a rich civic culture helps the poor escape poverty. Focusing on the implications of these differences, Duncan offers powerful insights into the dynamics of poverty, politics, and change.
