America's Struggle Against Poverty in the Twentieth Century by James T. Patterson

Book Description

This new edition of Patterson's widely used book carries the story of battles over poverty and social welfare through what the author calls the "amazing 1990s", those years of extraordinary performance of the economy. He explores a range of issues arising from the economic phenomenon - increasing inequality and demands for use of an improved poverty definition. He focuses the story on the impact of the highly controversial welfare reform of 1996, passed by a Republican Congress and signed by a Democratic President Clinton, despite the laments of anguished liberals.

Eve of Destruction by James T. Patterson Eve of Destruction, Paperback (December 2014)

The author argues that 1965, not 1968, was the most transformative year of the 1960s, discussing attacks on civil rights demonstrators, increased African American militancy, the Watts riots, anti-war protests, and a growing national pessimism.

Freedom is Not Enough by James T. Patterson Freedom is Not Enough, Paperback (April 2012)

"A concise and judicious account of Mr. Moynihan's political career, the report he made famous and the policy debates that the report inspired...Freedom Is Not Enough is written in an engaging style that makes these debates come alive again and that reminds us of their continuing importance."--Wall Street Journal

Restless Giant by James T. Patterson Restless Giant, Paperback (March 2007)

Attempts to illuminate the road that the US travelled from the dismal days of the mid-1970s through the hotly contested election of 2000.
