Poverty in an Urban Society: A Bibliography. Exchange Bibliography Series, Number 246.
Booher, David E.
This bibliography focuses upon the programs which have been proposed as a solution to poverty under the so-called war on poverty. The first section of the bibliography suggests some of the materials which could prove useful as theoretical or methodological guides to an analysis of the "powerlessness" of the poor and the operation of the local community action agency. Section two provides a partial listing of works which are relevant to an understanding of political participation at the local level. The third section provides a broad selection of materials dealing with the causes, characteristics, and remedies of poverty. Section four is a selection of academic works and official documents examining various aspects of the war on poverty declared by the Economic Opportunity Acts of 1964 and 1967. And finally, section five suggests some materials which are relevant to a study of the controversial Community Action Program. The bibliography concludes with a selection of relevant newspaper and magazine articles and other popular bibliographies on poverty and the poor. (Author/JM)
