Summary
First published in 1999, Worlds Apart examines poverty through the stories of real people in rural New England, Appalachia, and the Mississippi Delta. In this new edition, Duncan returns to her original research, interviewing some of the same people as well as new key informants. The work provides powerful new insights into the dynamics of poverty, politics, and community change.--Back cover
