The American Dream Under Siege

By Coral Celeste Frazer. The consequences of the increasing schism between the rich and the millions of Americans who don't earn enough to pay for basic life needs are addressed in this insightful examination of the rise and fall and rise of American inequality. This book considers such questions as what happens when young people don't do better than the generations before them and the consequences when women and minorities earn less than white men. It also explores issues like the extent and cost of inequality, inequality of opportunity, the power of money, and possible solutions, including a look at how some state and local governments, businesses, and ordinary citizens are fighting to close the gap between rich and poor. Grades 10–12. Index. Bibliography. Glossary. Notes. Illustrated. Lerner. 128 pages. ©2018.
