Booknews
A guide to about 200 technical terms used in contemporary scholarly research on poverty. Each entry contains definitions and explanations, followed by a select reading list of relevant journal articles and books. Some of the entries are the fringes of poverty issues, and others will be familiar only to those academics who work within a certain disciplinary definition of poverty. They are presented in various manners<-->some detailed, some more sketchy, some having only historical value, and others currently in vogue, thus presenting a diversified picture across time and space for a rethinking of poverty concepts.
