Summary
Camden, New Jersey was once an industrial giant. It employed some 36,000 workers in its shipyards during World War II and built some of the nation's largest warships; it was the home to major industries, from RCA Victor to Campbell's Soup; it was a destination for immigrants and upwardly mobile lower middle class families. Camden now resembles a penal colony. Here, Hedges and Sacco show how places like Camden, a poster child of postindustrial decay, stand as a warning of what huge pockets of the United States will turn into if we cement in place a permanent underclass
Summary
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Empire of Illusion and an American Book Award-winning cartoonist present a scathing graphic report on the crises facing America's poor as reflected in the city of Camden, New Jersey, tracing its descent from an industrial giant to a region torn by unemployment, open-air drug markets and budget cuts.
