Review:

'This third edition of Understanding Poverty will not disappoint the many lecturers who have recommended earlier editions as the main general introductory text on the subject. Once again Pete Alcock provides us and our students with a clear and comprehensive account of poverty and the policies developed to combat it.' - Ruth Lister, Professor of Social Policy, Loughborough University, and author of Poverty Reviews of the first edition: 'My students read this book and engage with it ... It has quickly become an important text.' - Angus Erskine, Lecturer in Social Policy, University of Stirling, UK 'This is an excellent book which can be strongly recommended for courses in social inequality or social policy.' - Reviewing Sociology
