When Michael Harrington's masterpiece, the Other America, was first published in 1962, it was hailed as an explosive work and became a galvanizing force for the War on poverty. Reviewing the book for The New Yorker, Dwight Macdonald said: "In the admirably short space of under two hundred pages [Harrington] outlines the problem, describes in imaginative detail what is means to be poor in this country today and analyzes the reasons for the persistence of mass poverty in the midst of general prosperity. It is an excellent book-and a most important one."

This illuminating, profoundly moving classic is still all too relevant for today's America. For the first time, this edition contains both of Michael Harrington's additional essays on poverty in the seventies and eighties as well as a new introduction by best-selling author Irving Howe.

NOTE: This title is a Bargain book. Bargain books are excess inventory or store returns from publishers that are discreetly marked with a small dot or line on the edge of the pages and, while most are in great condition, some books may exhibit minor cosmetic wear and tear. They may also have a price sticker on it from the original store it was returned from. In rare cases the actual cover of the book might not match the one in the display picture.
