About this product
- DescriptionIn a highly accessible mix of narrative and interviews with social science research, Dodson unearths the untold story of a silent movement for justice in contemporary America. Lisa Dodson spent eight years interviewing more than 800 supervisors, teachers and healthcare workers about their experiences interacting with the working poor. She repeatedly heard accounts of people bending the rules to help workers get by. These stories point to a surprising and inspiring phenomenon of the middle class refusing to be complicit in a fundamentally unfair enconomy.
- Author BiographyLisa Dodson worked as a union activist, an obstetrical nurse, and the director of the Division of Women's Health for the state of Massachusetts before becoming a professor of sociology at Boston College. She is the author of <i>The Moral Underground: How Ordinary Americans Subvert an Unfair Economy</i> (The New Press) and <i>Don't Call Us Out of Name</i>. She lives in Auburndale, Massachusetts.
