Dan Hatcher’s new book earns encomium from The New Yorker

Professor Daniel Hatcher‘s new book has received a glowing endorsement from Sarah Stillman, a staff writer for The New Yorker. The review is to appear on the jacket of The Poverty Industry: The Exploitation of America’s Most Vulnerable Citizens, which will be published by NYU Press in May.

Wrote Stillman: “Every American who cares about the intersection of private profits and public justice should read this book, and wrestle with its arguments. Hatcher marshals years of legal experience and research towards fulfilling the muckraker’s calling: ‘to comfort the afflicted, and afflict the comfortable.’ But he also goes a step further. In The Poverty Industry, he combines a practitioner’s depth with a journalist’s flair for storytelling to generate the first complete account of a little-known phenomenon that should be of interest to every reader with a conscience.”
