This book really hit close to home for me since I worked at the Chicago Housing Authority during the time the projects that Venkatesh writes about were being torn down. Venkatesh's in-depth look at poverty in Chicago was ground breaking and still offers one of the only ciomplex looks at how society is these high poverty areas functions.
