First published in 1999, Worlds Apart examined the nature of poverty through the stories of real people in three remote rural areas of the United States: New England, Appalachia, and the Mississippi Delta. In this new edition, Duncan returns to her original research, interviewing some of the same people as well as some new key informants. Duncan provides powerful new insights into the dynamics of poverty, politics, and community change. "Duncan, through in-depth investigation and interviews, concludes that only a strong civic culture, a sense among citizens of community and the need to serve that community, can truly address poverty...Moving and troubling. Duncan has created a remarkable study of the persistent patterns of poverty and power."--Kirkus Reviews "The descriptions of rural poverty in Worlds Apart are interesting and read almost like a novel."--Choice
