5.0 out of 5 stars Jennifer Smith Has the Substance, Here Are Some More Books

July 8, 2007

Theodore Dalrymple

I voted for Jennifer Smith’s review, and I believe it captures the essence very nicely. However, the author, who cannot be faulted for protraying the reality as it is, is best understood in the context of a few other books–if you don’t wish to buy them, just read my summative reviews:

The Working Poor: Invisible in America
Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America
War on the Middle Class: How the Government, Big Business, and Special Interest Groups Are Waging War on the American Dream and How to Fight Back
The Global Class War: How America’s Bipartisan Elite Lost Our Future – and What It Will Take to Win It Back
Running on Empty: How the Democratic and Republican Parties Are Bankrupting Our Future and What Americans Can Do About It
