Reviews

'This is the first book reporting on a unique and exciting programme investigating the changing situation of poor children over time in four developing countries. As well as reporting on important methodological innovations and comparative quantitative analysis of the evolving situation across the four countries, this uplifting book should be read for its unprecedented insights into children's own experience, perspectives, understanding and aspirations.' Frances Stewart, Emeritus Professor of Development Economics and Director of CRISE, University of Oxford, UK

'This volume is bound to challenge the orthodoxy, while at the same time offering avenues for orthopraxy. It offers a welcome antidote against a common flaw in economic research, namely statistics without context. The reader will gain a better understanding of childhood poverty from the book's combination of different methods of analyses with innovative sources of information.' Jan Vandemoortele, formerly with UNICEF and UNDP; now independent researcher, writer and lecturer

'This volume, the first of what will surely be an important collection, gives an excellent look into the challenges faced by impoverished households and the resulting consequences on their children.' Kristian Estevez, Universitat de Barcelona
