In this compulsively readable social history, a brilliant new addition to The New Press' acclaimed People's History series, political scientist Stephen Pimpare vividly describes poverty from the perspective of the poor and welfare-reliant from the big city to the rural countryside. He focuses on how the poor have created community, secured shelter and found food and illuminates their battles for dignity and respect.Through prodigious archival research and lucid analysis, Pimpare details the ways in which charity has been inseparable from scorn.
