This is an intense photo journalistic look at what remains of New Orlean's Lower Ninth Ward after Hurricane Katrina. From a sociologist's perspective, it is a heart-wrenching look at neighborhood destroyed not only by the forces of nature but by the lack of resources that would allow its occupants to rebuild and move forward. This is a beautiful book for the coffee table that is certain to initiate some good conversation about the plight of humanity.
