The first edition of Tally's Corner, a sociological classic selling more than one million copies, was the first compelling response to the culture of poverty thesis--that the poor are different and, according to conservatives, morally inferior--and alternative explanations that many African Americans are caught in a tangle of pathology owing to the absence of black men in families. The debate has raged up to the present day. Yet Liebow's shadow theory of values--especially the values of poor, urban, black men--remains the single most parsimonious account of the reasons why the behavior of the poor appears to be at odds with the values of the American mainstream. While Elliot Liebow's vivid narrative of "street-corner" black men remains unchanged, the new introductions to this long-awaited revised edition bring the book up to date. Wilson and Lemert describe the debates since 1965 and situate Liebow's classic text in respect to current theories of urban poverty and race. They account for what Liebow might have seen had he studied the street corner today after welfare has been virtually ended and the drug economy had taken its toll. They also take stock of how the new global economy is a source of added strain on the urban poor. Discussion of field methods since the 1960s rounds out the book's new coverage.… (mais)

Read this in a first-year university social science course. It certainly expanded my knowledge of the black community as it was during the 1960's. It was interesting to get to know the men and their outlook on life. I admired the author for applying the participant-observer method to urban life, immersing himself in a subculture very different from his past life. ( )

I read this over 20 years ago for a college course, and I picked it up to see how it holds up. And it does! I think because I've changed so much, this almost read like an entirely different book! It is dry at times, after all it is a "study", but very insightful for those people at that time and place. Tally, Richard, Sea Cat and the others expose their lives to the author, and their life in and around the Carry-out has much to teach. I'm glad I re-read this, and who knows? Maybe I'll read it again in another 20 years! ( )
