CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This book brings together the latest thinking about poverty dynamics from
diverse analytic traditions. While covering a vast body of conceptual and
empirical knowledge about economic and social mobility, it takes the reader on
compelling journeys of multigenerational accounts of three villages in
Kanartaka, India, twelve years in the life of a street child in Burkina Faso,
and much more. Leading development practitioners and scholars from the fields
of anthropology, economics, political science, and sociology critically examine
the literature from their disciplines and contribute new frameworks and
evidence from their own works. The Moving Out of Poverty series launched in
2007 is under the editorial direction of Deepa Narayan, Senior Advisor of the
World Bank and former director of the pathbreaking Voices of the Poor series.
It features the results of new comparative research across more than 500
communities in 15 countries to understand how and why people move out of
poverty, and presents other work which builds on interdisciplinary and
contextually grounded understandings of growth and poverty reduction.
