Editorial Reviews

Review


"This is a thoughtful and thought-provoking discussion of social policies that widen the gap between rich and poor children. It is an excellent chronicle of social policies in the U.S. since the Depression. [T]his essay should stimulate discussion of the long-term and far-reaching consequences of economic disparities among children in the U.S. -- our future."--Doody's Health Sciences Review


"...succinct...crisply written...offers sharp, well-reasoned, and politically progressive blueprint for attacking child poverty and its consequences....powerfully argued and engaging--I enjoyed reading it. I very strongly recommend it to people interested in understanding more about the causes of inequality and constructive approaches to child poverty." --Contemporary Sociology

By Jason Harley on May 2, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This is a well written book that is interesting and thought provoking. Duncan Lindsey lays out an argument that is compelling and easy to read. If more politicians were to read this book, this country would be in better financial shape than it is today. This book is about children and the growing gap between rich and poor, but it is also about all of us and the future of our society. The more successful our children are, the more our society prospers. Lindsey's idea of a fund to help all children go to college is progressive and a step in the right direction to keep our economy robust and maintain our standing in the world. Buy this book today and ten more copies for your friends!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great book, that was in very good condition. It evaluates child poverty in the United States, it provides examples of what has been done, how certain programs were effective,and then goes on to offer the authors solutions to the problem. Overall, it is pretty easy to read, gives background on all the polices it explains, and is informative. It engages the reader and makes them want to think critically about the education and social welfare programs available in the US. It is a good book to help one start thinking about policy analysis and learn to be critical of polices and pay attention to who is reviewing them.
