Editorial Reviews

Reference Reviews
...a surprisingly readable text covering the whole history of publishing on the subject of poverty in America...recommended to any library with a sociologically-minded readership.
Booknews
Sizable paragraphs describe books and articles written over the past century in a wide range of disciplines that deal with the measurement, causes, and consequences of poverty in the US. The chapters slice different ways, some considering history and welfare measures, others examining specific groups, such as children, minorities, and residents of ghettos and rural areas. Indexed only by name. Co-published with Salem Press. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
