Evicted: by Matthew Desmond - Poverty and Profit in  the American City - A Complete Summary  Evicted is a book written by Matthew Desmond. The book is about eviction and the side-effects that eviction can have on a person or community.  Eviction, which involves poverty and the loss of everything that a person once knew, has an enormous emotional impact on a person.

That is why the author decided to write about these things that unfortunately become part of people’s lives. The shelter, or home, is something that all of us want to have and something that we are ready t...

Evicted from Eternity Book Description :

Modern Rome is a city rife with contradictions. Once the seat of ancient glory, it is now often the object of national contempt. It plays a significant part on the world stage, but the concerns of its residents are often deeply parochial. And while they live in the seat of a world religion, Romans can be vehemently anticlerical. These tensions between the past and the present, the global and the local, make Rome fertile ground to study urban social life, the construction of the past, the role of religion in daily life, and how a capital city relates to the rest of the nation. Michael Herzfeld focuses on Rome’s historic Monti district and the wrenching dislocation caused by rapid economical, political, and social change. Evicted from Eternity tells ...
