Book Corner(BC) is for those who are interested in books that the UIUC libraries are collecting related to business or economics. This is designed for you, the reader, to get a chance to see what's new, and perhaps see a review or two while you are having your cup of coffee, tea, or just a read. Most of the time, the BC will be blogography; you are invited to post comments or short reviews on the books that you've read that are featured in this corner.
To start our virtual book shelf, first book we will mention is one that is getting a considerable amount of press, entitled The Working Poor: Invisible in America, by David Shipler. This work is not scholarly, but it invites readers to take an inside look at the poor who work at the menial jobs that keep our economy going. Shipler is a Pulitizer Prize winner and is a free lance writer. Sociologists, business and labor academics as well as practioners will likely find it to be a comfortable, interesting read--just in time for summer!
