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.
THE THREE VOLUMES of the Encyclopedia of World Poverty contain some 800 original, previously unpublished articles written by over 100 independent or affiliated scholars. This encyclopedia is intended for use as an authoritative and rigorous source on poverty and related issues. It provides extensive and current information and insight into the contemporary debate on poverty. It can also be used as a reference to other sources through its cross-references and bibliographies. It is a timely project; 2005 was marked by a declaration of concern with poverty by world leaders at the G-8 summit and at the World Economic Forum.
Furthermore, poverty as a pressing issue was brought to public attention thanks to the efforts of high-profile individuals, such as Bill and Melinda Gates and U-2 lead singer Bono, who were named Persons of the Year (2005) by Time magazine. In a time when public attention is directed to poverty, the Encyclopedia of World Poverty can be an indispensable source for all students of poverty.
