Ending Poverty in America

Is poverty a fact of life? Can the wealthiest nation in the world do nothing to combat the steadily rising numbers of Americans living in povertyor the 50 million Americans living in near poverty? Senator John Edwards and some of the countrys most prominent scholars, businesspeople, and community activists say otherwise.Published in conjunction with one of the countrys leading anti-poverty centers, Ending Poverty in America brings together some of Americas most respected social scientists, including William Julius Wilson, Katherine S. Newman, and Richard B. Freeman, alongside journalists, neighborhood organizers, and business leaders. The voices heard here are both liberal and conservative, and tackle hot-button issues such as job creation, schools, housing, and family-friendly social policy.The contributors explain why poverty is growing and outline concrete steps that can be taken now to start turning the tide. In a political landscape seemingly bereft of daring and forward-thinking ideas, this new book lays out a path toward eliminating poverty in Americaa template for a renewed public debate for an issue of intense urgency.
