China’s War against the Many Faces of Poverty measures multidimensional poverty in China and deprivation related to income, education, health issues, living standards and social security. The book adopts a well-developed methodology using three different empirical datasets to analyse aspects of regional diversity across rural and urban and migrant populations of China.

The book also analyses the links between development policies considered by the government and the various facets of poverty in light of rapid economic growth and addresses important policy implications.

In the existing literature, in-depth research on multidimensional poverty in China is almost non-existent. This book is a pioneer study in this important field of research. With its innovative approach in concepts and methodologies and in its analysis of policy implications make this book a definitive and valuable addition to the literature.

Pundarik Mukhopadhaya is Associate Professor at the Department of Economics, Macquarie University, Australia.

Review:

'The combination of the use of multiple datasets and the multidimensional approach to poverty measurement allows the authors broad coverage in investigating poverty in China over the last decade. The book is written in a self-contained fashion, with details given in the first three chapters on both the multidimensional poverty measurement framework, as well as the policy-climate in China, thus making the book accessible to those who are not specialised in either aspects. [...] Overall, the book can be used to gain a bird’s eye view of non-income aspects of poverty in China over the last decade and readers can focus on the results from sections that are of specific interest to them.' – The Journal of International Trade & Economic Development, Volume 25, Issue 8.

'This book evaluates various dimensions of poverty in different regions of China and examines the multidimensional poverty statuses and trends so as to point out several target indicators, such as health care and education, which require government attention. As a whole, the book offers a number of clear points on China’s multidimensional poverty and provides some valuable policy suggestions for poverty alleviation in China. This book is accessible to a broad range of readers, including academics and business people, especially policy-makers. It will benefit those who are interested in multidimensional poverty in general and in China’s income inequality in particular.' ― Economic Record, Volume 93, Issue 301, p346-348

'The present book is an in-depth investigation into the trends in poverty in China. From the point of view of the general reader the most welcome feature of the book is the lucidity of the exposition. Yet, thankfully for the serious academic researcher, the lucidity is not achieved at the cost of failing to address the complexities of the task. [...] All told, this book is a significant contribution to the literature on multidimensional poverty. Future researchers on the subject can learn a lot from the work reported here.' ― Asian-Pacific Economic Literature, Volume 32, Issue 1
