Changing Poverty, Changing Policies

Publication Abstract

Cancian, Maria, and Sheldon H. Danziger. 2009. Changing Poverty, Changing Policies. New York: Russell Sage.

This book documents how economic, social, demographic, and public policy changes since the early 1970s have altered who is poor and where antipoverty initiatives have kept pace or fallen behind. It also shows that thoughtful policy reforms can reduce poverty and promote opportunities for poor workers and their families. The authors’ focus on pragmatic measures that have real possibilities of being implemented in the United States provides not only vital knowledge about what works, but real hope for change.
