Life at the Bottom: The Worldview that Creates the Underclass

life at the bottom.jpgThere are a several really good books that we read during the Summit Oxford program. The one that appears to be the students' favorite is Life at the Bottom: The Worldview That Makes the Underclass, by Theodore Dalrymple. I've discovered that all of the original essays are available online. I've linked them below, if you'd like to given them a read. Otherwise, if you're like me and still appreciate a tactile read, I do recommend getting yourself a copy of Life at the Bottom: The Worldview That Makes the Underclass. I've linked to an Amazon edition above. Cheers!
