The cover says:

"Herbert Gans: This book shows exactly how we blame the victims of poverty rather than the real villain, the inequality of American society...An impassioned, often brilliant expose' of middle-class ideology...

Jonathan Kozol said: A superb book and a powerful polemic...I hope that it will help to counteract some of the poison that has been emanating from the basement of the White House."
