In Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, Matthew Desmond tackles the issue of systemic poverty and discrimination as it’s never been done before. Following a handful of people through their personal struggles with eviction at the height of the Great Recession, Desmond offers a window into the reality of poverty that far too many are forced to experience.
In his book, Desmond argues that eviction is more a cause of poverty than a consequence of it and offers real solutions to this pervasive problem in American society. No matter what your financial situation, Evicted provides invaluable perspective into the personal side of poverty: both from near-homeless tenants and the landlords who make their living in misfortune.
