Reviews

"Schweid creates some vivid portraits of day-to-day struggles . . . . You close the book wondering where those millions of homeless children will sleep tonight."-- (10/24/2016)
"Remarkable and disconcerting. . . . This exceptional work of journalism chronicles the lives of America's homeless families. . . . Schweid traveled through a nation that privileged Americans generally try to avoid and deny. These more fortunate Americans are embarrassed, indifferent and sometimes actively hostile to the desperate plight of their hidden neighbors. Schweid's book is a compelling account of his findings."-- (10/28/2016)
"Invisible Nation exemplifies the relevance of history to social science research and policymaking and would be most useful in social welfare history courses aimed at students of social work, policy, and other practical disciplines."--Journal of Children and Poverty
