In Poverty, by America, acclaimed sociologist Matthew Desmond examines the nature of American poverty today and the stories we tell ourselves about it. In his wide ranging book, covering racism, mass incarceration, the housing crisis, domestic violence, drug epidemics, welfare cuts and more, Desmond argues that we already know how to eliminate it – the hard part is getting more of us to care enough to change the narrative.
