about this book

A revised, updated edition of Ryan's classic study of how and why we prefer to put the blame for poverty on its victims rather than on the inequalities of American society. Blaming the Victim, originally published in 1970, was the first book to identify these truisms as part of the system of denial that even the best-intentioned Americans have constructed around the unpalatable realities of race and class.
