An extraordinary work of scholarship and reportage by a rising star at Harvard that will forever change the way we look at poverty in America. We think we know what causes poverty—everything from joblessness and lack of education to violence and incarceration. But in this groundbreaking book, Harvard sociologist Matthew Desmond reveals another powerful force, one that has largely been ignored by scholars, journalists, and society as a whole: eviction.
