Poverty Law: Policy and Practice is organized around an overview of federal policies, significant poverty law cases, and major government antipoverty programs—welfare, housing, health, etc.— which map onto important theoretical, doctrinal, policy, and practice questions.
As the first poverty law textbook to be published in 15 years, the edition includes new material, both changes in the law and updated scholarship that will make the book a great resource for teaching poverty law.
