9780771000515: The Poverty Wall is Built on Greed, Racism...

One-third of our nation's population lives in poverty. The Poverty Wall is an angry book about this third of Canada's citizens; it is an indictment of the stupidity, brutality, and in- humanity of the affluent classes and the governments and corporations they control.
For years the forgotten citizens of this country, the poor of Canada are finally receiving the attention they deserve. But how much is going to be done and how fast as long as decisions^are made by people who know nothing of what it is to be poor?
In this controversial book, Ian Adams vividly depicts the demeaning, Dickensian world that the affluent classes have forced upon the poor amid hollow proclamations of a "Just Society." The Poverty Wall is an indignant, biased book- but it admits its biases and sets out to defend them with a wealth of statistics and a moving portrait of the Canadians trapped behind The Poverty Wall.
Born in Africa and raised in Great Britain and Pakistan as well as Canada, Ian Adams had seen more of the world when he went into journalism than most journalists see in a life- time. One of Canada's "rising young journalists, " he is a former staff writer for both Maclean's Magazine and Weekend Magazine, and his free-lance writing has appeared in every major Canadian magazine.
