Poverty and Profit in the American City

Not only is Evicted informative, interesting, and important, it is well-written and easy to follow. The majority of the book introduces readers to folks facing eviction in Milwaukee with some historical and current-day information both about the city and the country as a whole mixed in. The book closes with Desmond's suggested solutions to the crisis and while I do not consider myself an expert on the topic by any means, they seem reasonable and doable to me. Regardless, something needs to be done and done quickly. Everyone should have the right to affordable and safe housing despite circumstance.
