商品の説明

内容紹介

That was the simple yet groundbreaking question William T. Vollmann asked in cities and villages around the globe. The result of Vollmann's fearless inquiry is a view of poverty unlike any previously offered.

Poor People struggles to confront poverty in all its hopelessness and brutality, its pride and abject fear, its fierce misery and quiet resignation, allowing the poor to explain the causes and consequences of their impoverishment in their own cultural, social, and religious terms. With intense compassion and a scrupulously unpatronizing eye, Vollmann invites his readers to recognize in our fellow human beings their full dignity, fallibility, pride, and pain, and the power of their hard-fought resilience.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Fascinating study of poverty 2017/1/15
投稿者 T. Hobart - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
A fascinating and well organized study of poverty. Though it was evident that the book was the result of an immense amount of research, the author does not describe the process of analysis through which he reached his conclusions. This, however, does not diminish the overall value of the book. I was drawn in, nearly from beginning to end. The value lies in providing a conception of poverty across cultures that is more about lived experiences than cold numbers. The book drags on a bit at the end; the first 2/3 is really where the interesting nuggets can be found. But I would enthusiastically recommend it to anyone seeking to understand poverty.

5つ星のうち 4.0 I understand the criticisms, but I like it. 2012/12/29
投稿者 J. Smith - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I am almost finished reading this book. Personally, while I do understand some of the reviewers' criticisms of it, I am enjoying it. One problem some people seem to have is that he does not offer solutions or even opinions in many cases, and that he has this outsider's perspective and then on top of that is paying people, so in turn he is getting what he wants in a way. And while I understand those criticisms, I am OK with all of it because he is exceedingly conscious of those very facts, and acknowledges them constantly. The book is not intended to offer solutions for poverty, and it is not a judgment of the people he interviews nor of those of us who are not poor (i.e., most of the readers). It is just an examination with plenty of introspection, and I find it quite fascinating. I enjoy his writing style and while yes, he does sometimes go off on tangents, I find his stream of consciousness quite interesting at many points. I think he accomplishes what he sets out to do, and I appreciate the narrative's honesty.

The book leads you a journey through the eyes of poor people through the eyes of a journalist all over the world to see how and why people are poor. I found the book very stimulating and interesting perspective of how someone else sees poor people.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Perspective Broadening 2013/9/5
投稿者 Tae from Hawaii - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
This work is timeless although it's really a snapshot in time of the author's. I could recommend it to 'straights' or other clueless middle class peeps like myself. I think it could be useful for social workers, psychologists, parole officers, 'screws', 'hacks', police, federal investigators, psychiatric nurses, psychiatrists and anyone else who deals with poor people for a living.
