Summary

Summary

"Davies traces in telling detail the process by which American liberals in the 1960s moved to the left in their thinking about approaches to dealing with poverty. His excellent book rests on extraordinarily deep research, is written with clarity and verve, and deserves a wide readership". -- James T. Patterson, author of America's Struggle Against Poverty, 1900-1994. "Reading Davies' account, one sees afresh how the Great Society became the Great Punching Bag for a generation of conservatives and neoconservatives". -- Hugh Heclo, author of A Government of Strangers.
