Text/underlining to 2 pgs (xxvi - xxvii) of Introduction, else BRAND NEW. Beige linen boards/NF w/soil spot at lower back edge. DJ/VG; Clean & strong w/nips & short closed tears to edges. PO name on fEP. Anthropologist Oscar Lewis (1914 - 1970) studied the poor of Mexico City and Puerto Rico, and noted the transferral of held values and perspectives to the slums of New York City through immigration. On the national "war on poverty", Lewis said that "one of the major obstacles to . progress in the current war against poverty is the great gulf that exists between the values and way of life of the very poor and those of middle class personnel." This volume is a short and poignant account of the laying to rest of Aunt Guadalupe. For the poor, the struggle bury the dead is a great a hardship as to keep one alive. LAID-IN is the author's obituary, Washington Post, Dec. 18th, 1970; the news clipping has left faint discoloration to the rear cover and final page. Fine copy of a classical study, as was the preceding Children of Sanchez. N° de ref. de la librería 000771
