From the Publisher:

This book was written to provide students with a broad overview of the dimensions of poverty and discrimination, the various explanations for these social ills, and the policy options for addressing them.

From the Back Cover:

  • The latest (1998) poverty profiles, including special Census Bureau tabulations undertaken specifically for the Schiller text.
  • A detailed discussion of the new welfare system (TANF) and an assessment of its impact on welfare caseloads and poverty.
  • An assessment of the affirmative action reversals in California and elsewhere.
  • More illustrations and assessments of the interplay between business cycles, poverty, and discrimination.
  • A new assessment of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) as well as targeted employee tax credits (e.g., the Work Opportunity Tax Credit).
  • Expanded discussion of the minimum wage.
  • New material on "family policy," including maternity leave and child care subsidies.
  • New emphasis on class discrimination and income-targeted preferences.
  • More public opinion data on poverty, inequality, and racism.
  • Additional data on the critical antipoverty effectiveness of Social Security and other income-transfer programs.

In addition to this wealth of new material, the new edition of The Economics of Poverty and Discrimination lists web sites that permit students to access additional data and resources. An accompanying Instructor's Manual, prepared by Professor Steve Rock of Western Illinois University, offers additional resources and teaching suggestions.
