Summary
The first edition of Tally's Corner, a sociological classic selling more than one million copies, was the first compelling response to the culture of poverty thesis -- that the poor are different and, according to conservatives, morally inferior -- and alternative explanations that many African Americans are caught in a tangle of pathology owing to the absence of black men in families. Wilson and Lemert describe the debates since 1965 and situate Liebow's classic text in respect to current theories of urban poverty and race. They account for what Liebow might have seen had he studied the street corner today after welfare has been virtually ended and the drug economy had taken its toll. They also take stock of how the new global economy is a source of added strain on the urban poor. --from publisher description
