Description

The first edition of Tally's Corner, a sociological classic, 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. Elliot Liebow's new introduction to this long-awaited revised edition bring the book up to date. Visit our website for sample chapters!
