In "The Truly Disadvantaged", renowned American sociologist William Julius Wilson takes a look at the social transformation of inner city ghettos, offering a sharp evaluation of the convergence of race and poverty. Rejecting both conservative and liberal interpretations of life in the inner city, Wilson offers essential information and a number of solutions to policymakers. "The Truly Disadvantaged" is a wide-ranging examination, looking at the relationship between race, employment, and education from the 1950s onwards, with surprising and provocative findings. This second edition also includes a new afterword from Wilson himself that brings the book up to date and offers fresh insight into its findings.

Recensioner i media

"Required reading for anyone, presidential candidate or private citizen, who really wants to address the growing plight of the black urban underclass." (David J. Garrow, Washington Post Book World) "The Truly Disadvantaged should spur critical thinking in many quarters about the causes and possible remedies for inner city poverty. As policymakers grapple with the problems of an enlarged underclass they - as well as community leaders and all concerned Americans of all races - would be advised to examine Mr. Wilson's incisive analysis." (Robert Greenstein, New York Times Book Review)"
