Praise

An up-close and personal account of nine strong-minded African-American women who became welfare-rights activists in Las Vegas . . . A worthy history of the country’s changing attitudes toward welfare and the various attempts to eradicate poverty. –Kirkus Reviews

“This amazing story is like a truly great novel, the revelation of a world unknown.”–Dorothy Allison, author of Bastard Out of Carolina

“A poignant counterpoint to the current culture of cynicism and despair. After reading Storming Caesars Palace, you’ll want to get up and do something to make the world a better place.”–Hagar Scher, Chicago Tribune

“What a lovely book of hope! With grace and with rigor, Annelise Orleck presents the War on Poverty from the field and the vantage point of poor mothers.”–Nell Irvin Painter, author of Sojourner Truth

“This stunning book gives new meaning to the notion of history from the bottom up.”–Alice Kessler-Harris, author of In Pursuit of Equity
