- Table of Contents (many of the readings seem worth checking out and possibly would make good class assignments).
More relevant info... John Edwards was the founding director of the UNC School of Law's Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity. For more info, see:
- Video of John Edwards talking about poverty at Berkeley
- Edwards campaign's page on poverty related to book
Note: I don't mean to be endorsing a candidate... the book does seem worthy of attention regardless of your thoughts pro/con on the Edwards bid for President.
