The Shame of It
Global Perspectives on Anti-poverty Policies
Distributed for Policy Press at the University of Bristol
"By examining anti-poverty policies and programmes from the perspective of poor people themselves, this book makes a novel and important contribution which will undoubtedly influence policy makers for years to come. Its study of the psychological dimensions of poverty in different countries also contributes to an emerging one-world perspective that will inform social policy scholarship everywhere. It deserves to be widely read."
"This is a truly global study of a global problem, written by a team from across the globe and based on original fieldwork. The focus on shame and shaming in policy processes breaks new ground."
