"Understanding Poverty" provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the analysis of poverty and social exclusion covering the definition, measurement, distribution and causes of poverty and the policies developed to combat it.

The third edition has been extensively rewritten and expanded to include recent developments in research and policy, while maintaining the successful broad approach of earlier editions. In particular, coverage of poverty dynamics and social exclusion has been expanded, with chapters covering targeted anti-poverty action and the new programmes developed since 1997.
