Description: The authors present a new kind of interdisciplinary pedagogy that brings together antipoverty grassroots activism and relevant social theories about poverty. This unique book combines the oral history of a renowned antipoverty organizer with accessible introductions to relevant social theories, case studies, in-class student debates, and pedagogical reflections. This multilayered approach makes it useful to both social activists committed to eradicating poverty and educators looking for ways to teach about the struggles for economic and social justice.
