Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: A revelatory account of poverty in America so deep that we, as a country, don't think it exists. After two decades of brilliant research on American poverty, Kathryn Edin noticed something she hadn't seen since the mid-1990s -- households surviving on virtually no income. The number of American families living on $2.00 per person, per day, has skyrocketed to 1.5 million American households, including about 3 million children. Where do these families live? How did they get so desperately poor?
