NOT A CRIME TO BE POOR: The Criminalization of Poverty in America

In this provocative work, Edelman posits that in one of the richest countries on Earth it has effectively become a crime to be poor, and the criminalization of poverty is not confined to money. School children are sent to court for playground skirmishes that previously sent them to the principal's office, and the homeless are arrested for sleeping in the park.
