Reducing Poverty in America Views and Approaches by Michael R. Darby

Reducing Poverty in America Views and Approaches


Reducing Poverty in America Views and Approaches by Michael R. Darby

This challenging volume reflects the breadth of the debate over the existence of poverty in the United States and what can be done to eradicate it. With contributions from 21 distinguished social scientists and policy analysts, the book represents the diversity of ideas on how to effectively reduce the social ills of poverty, welfare dependency and the `underclass'. Four areas of focus in anti-poverty efforts are examined in depth: education, community empowerment, job training and social intervention.
