From the PublisherThis important book is the first systematic study to compare and evaluate the wide range of paradigms underlying recent efforts to mitigate urban poverty, and makes an eloquent empirical and analytic case for the importance of poor urban communities in defining, catalyzing and implementing reducing urban poverty. It is indispensable for all policy-makers, scholars and activists concerned with urban poverty and inequality in the cities of our world.
–Arjun Appadurai, New York University, USA
A comprehensive handbook on how to reduce urban poverty – invaluable for students, teachers, policy actors and agencies wanting to understand and help cities and communities. The authors are brilliantly equipped to steer us all towards better outcomes for low-income urban settlements.
