When Michael Harrington's masterpiece, the Other America, was first published in 1962, it was hailed as an explosive work and became a galvanizing force for the War on poverty. Reviewing the book for The New Yorker, Dwight Macdonald said: "In the admirably short space of under two hundred pages [Harrington] outlines the problem, describes in imaginative detail what is means to be poor in this country today and analyzes the reasons for the persistence of mass poverty in the midst of general prosperity. It is an excellent book-and a most important one."

This illuminating, profoundly moving classic is still all too relevant for today's America. For the first time, this edition contains both of Michael Harrington's additional essays on poverty in the seventies and eighties as well as a new introduction by best-selling author Irving Howe.
