  • An Atlas of Poverty in America: One Nation, Pulling Apart, 1960-2003 REF HC110 .P6 G543 2006 + CD-ROM
    Provides an historical and contemporary account of economic opportunity in the U.S. The topics were selected based on many factors, most importantly the historical record of poverty in America and the lived experience of being poor in our nation today. A central theme is the enduring character of poverty in America, consistently affecting groups of individuals and places over time. A key message of this atlas is that America’s poor are people who work or who are dependents of people who work and face limited opportunity, often due to living in places that are seriously disadvantaged because of geography or history or both. The story is also one about public policy and the extent to which public intervention has been sufficient to ensure that all persons in this country have an equal chance to achieve their highest potential.
