Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American CityEvicted:Poverty and Profit in the American City

By Matthew Desmond

Signed copies are available

In Evicted, Princeton sociologist and MacArthur "Genius" Matthew
Desmond follows eight families in Milwaukee as they struggle to keep a
roof over their heads. Hailed as "wrenching and revelatory" (The Nation), "vivid and unsettling" (New York Review of Books), Evicted
transforms our understanding of poverty and economic exploitation while
providing fresh ideas for solving one of 21st-century America's most
devastating problems. Its unforgettable scenes of hope and loss remind
us of the centrality of home, without which nothing else is possible.
