'This book is a major step forward in our understanding of the dynamics of child poverty in rich and transition nations. There are both conceptual and empirical breakthroughs here. For the first time, one can systematically and comparatively assess exits and entries to poverty, their associated changes in family structure and incomes, and the policy implications of these changes in seven nations. The volume will stand as a landmark piece of research for quite sometime. Copies belong on the shelves of academics and policymakers with an interest in poverty, social exclusion and its alleviation amongst our most important future resource, our children.' Professor Tim Smeeding, Syracuse University 'We still know surprisingly little about the dynamics of childhood poverty and hence about the nature, causes and consequences of the deprivations suffered by so many of the world's youngest generation. This volume is an exceedingly valuable contribution to our understanding - at long last the gaps in our knowledge are being filled, and in some cases with unanticipated results. All that is needed now is the political courage to respond.' Professor Robert Walker, School of Sociology and Social Policy, University of Nottingham '... a very well-written and useful collection that should advance thinking about child poverty.' European Sociological Review 'There is something for everyone interest in the topics of poverty and income dynamics ... The book is original in content and long overdue, the writing quality and integration across chapters is outstanding ... The book will appeal more to academics than to policy analysts, but will be appreciated by the insights it offers to all serious academic and nonacademic analysts of poverty dynamics. It makes a great deal of basic information very accessible and straightforward ... The sheer weight of the coordination of analytics across seven nations, which is evident here, is too much to ask most authors to undertake. this makes for a fresh, high quality and very hard to duplicate effort. Serious analysts of the dynamics of disadvantage mobility should all have this book on their shelves.' Professor Tim Smeeding, Syracuse University
