Editorial Reviews

Review

"Clear and compassionate . . ." -- Rural America

"The picture that emerges here is not pretty: The families are debt-ridden, with little chance of getting out from under; the men are at once docile and angry, the women depressed and often ill. Worse, the children seem doomed to repeat the travails of their parents . . ." -- The New Leader

"The understanding one is able to glean from this work concerning the system of rural poverty serves as a requisite to planners, policymakers, and program developers, as well as front-line workers, clinicians, and community organizers." -- American Journal of Orthopsychiatry
