'the Other America' Takes The Veil Off American Poverty

Fifty years on, Michael Harrington's book resonates in its impassioned look at one of the country's 'greatest scandals.'Michael Harrington's "The Other America: Poverty in the United States" had been in print for about 20 years when I first read it in the early 1980s. I was a young journalist then, and I had found a musty paperback edition in a basement-level used bookstore around the corner from my apartment near the heart of Jamestown, N.Y., where my entry-level newspaper wages were so low that, after rent and student loan payments, I couldn't afford a car.
