So Rich, So Poor: Why It's So Hard to End Poverty in America - Peter Edelman Definitely a worthwhile read and makes some critical points; I'm only giving it three stars because I think Edelman still falls into that progressive liberal trap that doesn't question very basic ideas that have been ingrained in our (mis)understanding of society, like the horror (the horror!) of unmarried motherhood...I just wish honest critical thinking wasn't hampered by a need to appeal to so-called moderates that have bought in to enough capitalist propaganda to immediately throw out anything that doesn't mesh with their current, essentialist understanding of states and economies.
