Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

The Encyclopedia of World Poverty provides extensive and current information, as well as insight into the contemporary debate on poverty. The three volumes of this state-of-the-art Encyclopedia contain over 800 original articles written by more than 125 renowned scholars. The entries contributing to this work explore poverty in various regions of the world, and examine the difficulties associated with the definition and measurement of poverty, along with its causes and effects.

Recensione:

"Sage's three-volume Encyclopedia of World Poverty (ISBN 1-4129-1807-3. $395), scheduled for release in July, features over 800 A-to-Z articles on every aspect of poverty. Written by a cast of over 100 experts in the field, the work places special emphasis on current vital statistics on poverty, the causes and effects of poverty, organizations dedicated to fighting poverty, and much more. Given that over 1.2 billion people currently live in extreme poverty (i.e., on less than $1 a day), a resource that tackles the issue in such detail makes for an indispensable addition to all libraries." (Mirela Roncevic LIBRARY JOURNAL 2006-05-01)

"An informative and comprehensive reference with more than 800 alphabetical, signed entries on all aspects of poverty. This encyclopedia offers a wealth of statistics and information that is not readily available elsewhere. The entries have high reading levels and many include complex technical discussions of statistical methods, international banking, and economic theories. A good choice for high school collections." (Mary Mueller 2006-09-19)

"Well designed and indispensable for academic and secondary school reference collections, it is an important aid for public administrators, politicians, and others formulating public policies and analyzing their impact on society." (Caroline Geck 2006-09-19)

"The inclusion of Hurrican Katrina (in the "Natural Disasters" article) shows that this resource is truly current. Well designed and indispensable for academic and secondary school reference collections, is an important aid for public administrators, politicians, and others formulating public policies and analyzing their impact on society." (Garoline Geck 2006-10-01)

"The encyclopedia itself is quite readable. The topics are presented in an engaging and understated manner that invites browsing and further reading within the volumes. Encyclopedia of World Poverty should be seriously considered by all academic and large public libraries." (Danise Hoover 2006-11-27)

"Especially interesting are the articles discussing local organizations, intergovernmental organizations, and nongovernmental organizations, as well as theories on how gender, race, and age are intertwined with poverty. An additional feature is a set of articles on US presidents' administrations and efforts to protect segments of the population such as veterans and the aged. This thorough effort brings the definition of poverty out of its narrow income content, while also looking at local grassroots efforts such as Heifer Project International. The full-page articles, followed by short bibliographies, are lucidly written and printed in an easy-to-read font size." (H. H. Ives 2007-01-19)

"Globalization makes the study of world poverty more critical, and though the topic is huge, this encyclopedia does an effective job of distilling it into manageable form. Pulling information together in this way allows researchers to more easily see not only generalities but also how conditions differ in each country." (Booklist 2007-02-28)

" . . . It provides an interesting starting point for a vast range of topics. . .  it forces readers to appreciate the breadth of issues, facts, and figures related to poverty around the world. For this alone the publication deserves credit." (John W. McArthur 2007-03-15)
