Why the Poor Are Still with Us: II. The Moral Environment of the Poor.
Schwartz, Joel
Public Interest, n103 p21-37 Spr 1991
Discusses the implementation of measures that view the restoration of moral order as a key to the reduction of poverty. Examines the history of this idea, notably in the works of Jacob Riis. The return to an emphasis on character is seen as a timely response to urban disorder and degeneracy. (DM)
