This book examines poverty in the context of the economy, society and the political community, considering how states can respond to issues of inequality, exclusion and powerlessness. Drawing on examples in both rich and poor countries, this is an accessible contribution to the debate about the nature of poverty and responses to it.

Review Quotes
Camilo PĂ©rez-Bustillo, Stanford University
"This thoughtful exploration of the contemporary landscape of poverty studies is especially valuable for those of us focused on human rights and social justice from the perspective of the Global South."
Katja Hujo, United Nations Research Institute for Social Development
"The author provides fresh insights into a longstanding topic at the heart of development theory and practice. His multi-level and multi-disciplinary analysis which looks at poor and rich countries in tandem is an important contribution to current development debates in the era of the SDGs."
