Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for graduate school at the University of Chicago. It is an excellent collection of articles by noted scholars on social policy issues, especially poverty. There are a lot of facts and figures and data, but they are explained, interpreted, and integrated very well into the verbiage. I highly recommend it.

This book presents strong research and analysis of trends in poverty and related policy over the recent decades. Sheldon Danzinger is a premier scholar, and has been featured in the news media. Even for those who have studied social policy in the past--including myself, this book is an invaluable resource for any who want to see an updated picture of changing contexts.
