He is the author of four books, including Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, which won the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Critics Circle Award, and Carnegie Medal, and PEN / John Kenneth Galbraith Award for Nonfiction. The principal investigator of The Eviction Lab, Desmond’s research focuses on poverty in America, city life. “Inside my copy of his book, Mr. Desmond scribbled a note: ‘home = life.’ Too many in Washington don’t understand that. We need a government that will partner with communities, from Appalachia to the suburbs to downtown Cleveland, to make hard work pay off for all these overlooked Americans.”—Senator Sherrod Brown, Wall Street Journal.

Mr. Desmond has a Bachelor of Arts from Oregon State University, a Master of Arts from Indiana University and has published articles in the Journal of Low Intensity Conflict and Law Enforcement, and a book on Soviet Military and Intelligence Services Camouflage. He has numerous awards from the United States Army, FBI and the Department of Defense.

  Yet since the publication of Mr Desmond’s book, New York City has become the first place to guarantee a right to legal counsel in eviction proceedings. Like several other cities, it has also.   The surprise call came from Penguin at the end of July - Penguin executives indicated repeated attempts to get Mr Desmond to sign the deal, said to be worth £,, had failed. Mr Desmond’s company, Northern & Shell, then promptly submitted a second application that almost doubled the size of the development, with 1, homes in five towers.   Group profits at Rietumu Banka, the Latvian bank in which billionaire financier Dermot Desmond has a one-third stake, tumbled 40pc to €m in the third quarter of the year.
