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 povertya€”or the 50 million Americans living in a€œnear povertya€? Senator John Edwards and some of the countrya€™s most prominent scholars, businesspeople, and community activists say otherwise. Published in conjunction with one of the countrya€™s leading anti-poverty centers, Ending Poverty in America brings together some of Americaa€™s 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.
