This introductory chapter begins with a brief discussion of child poverty in America. It then lays out the purpose of the book, which is to examine the link between child poverty and growing inequality. The book argues that we cannot solve these problems separately. If Americans want to reduce the growing inequality, then they will need to reduce child poverty, which is where the inequality most often begins and is sustained. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
