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.
