Join the CLP for a discussion of White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America (DB 85242). Historian Nancy Isenberg looks at the role of the white poor in American history. She examines both public policy and popular opinion about poverty, from early settlers through the Civil War, Reconstruction, the Great Depression, and even early twenty-first-century reality TV, disproving the myth of America as a class-free society.
