With an introduction by Libby Davies, M.P.

Jean Swanson shows how people with power and money attack the poor.
* Poor-bashing means ignoring facts and repeating stereotypes about
people who are poor.
* Poor-bashing means having your reality and perceptions denied by people
with more money than you have.
* Poor-bashing means living in terror that someone will take your children.

Vancouver writer Jean Swanson has worked as an anti-poverty activist for 
twenty-five years.

Co-sponsored by: Between the Lines, Octopus Books, The National 
Anti-Poverty Organization, The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.
