InÂ Evicted, Princeton sociologist and MacArthur âGeniusâ Matthew Desmond follows eight families in Milwaukee as they each struggle to keep a roof over their heads. Hailed as âwrenching and revelatoryâ (The Nation), âvivid and unsettlingâ (New York Review of Books),Â EvictedÂ transforms our understanding of poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving one of twenty-first-century Americaâs most devastating problems. Its unforgettable scenes of hope and loss remind us of the centrality of home, without which nothing else is possible.Â
