Below the line : living poor in America by Eugene Richards( Book )

9 editions published in 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the tradition of the classic photodocumentaries that emerged from the Depression years and the 1960s, Below the Line depicts the deplorable extent of poverty that exists in the United States today. In early 1986, Consumers Union commissioned esteemed photographer Eugene Richards to travel across the country to document the dimensions of American poverty. In 144 unforgettable photographs and 14 essays, Richards captures the hoplessness of urban youth, the struggle of Midwestern farmers, the squalor of day-to-day existence for Mexican-American immigrants living in Texas border towns. The men and women of Shantytown on new York City's Lower East Side, a fifteen year old Chicago girl with two children, a Korean war vet and ex-Green Beret living in a Boston shelter, these people tell their stories in a text culled from mroe than one hundred hours of interviews, accompanied by Richards' exceptional portraits."

"Acclaimed journalist Christiane Bird, who riveted readers with her tour of Iran in Neither East Nor West, now tells the Kurds' story, using personal observations and in-depth research to illuminate the astonishing history and vibrant culture of a people without a state to call their own." "From a Kurdish wedding in Iran, to the destroyed Kurdish countryside in southeast Turkey, to the sites of Saddam Hussein's horrific chemical attacks in Iraq, Bird offers welcome insight into a violently stunning world seen by few Westerners-and understood by fewer. Combining mesmerizing travelogue, action-packed history, expert reportage, and incisive cultural study, this critical book offers timely insight into an unknown but increasingly influential part of the world.
