Emerita Mil Duncan Publishes Updated Research on Poverty in Rural America

Worlds Apart book cover

Professor emerita of sociology Cynthia M. Duncan has published a second edition of her 1999 book, Worlds Apart: Poverty and Politics in Rural America (Yale University Press), which examines poverty in three U.S. regions: rural New England, Appalachia, and the Mississippi Delta. For the new edition, Duncan returned to the communities in which she had conducted her original research to tease out what has changed in the intervening years, and what has not.
