Poverty and the Underclass suggests that the arguments of both the left and right are misguided and offers new explanations for the persistence of poverty.

Looking beyond the codewords that have come to obscure the debate—underclass, family values, the culture of poverty,—Kelso emphasizes that poverty is not a monolithic condition, but a vast and multidimensional by:   The Urban Underclass.
