Críticas:

'This book introduces a number of recent methodological advances in the measurement of poverty - including those on poverty lines, on incorporating vulnerability into poverty indices, and on socio-politically salient groupings - and applies them to the Asian context. The authors include some of the global leaders in this new literature. The volume will prove useful to students of poverty and to analysts of Asian development.' -- Ravi Kanbur, Cornell University, US 'What do we mean by poverty? Why is it so difficult to measure? We have often grappled with these questions, which are both pertinent, yet difficult to answer, because poverty has many facets. In this edited collection, Silber and Wan address four important but distinct aspects of poverty - namely, absolute and relative poverty, vulnerability, and multidimensionality. Asia has undoubtedly achieved an unprecedented reduction in poverty; however, as the book argues, this achievement is incomplete unless different aspects of poverty are considered. It is essential reading for those interested in the subject of poverty in Asia.' -- Nanak Kakwani, University of New South Wales, Australia

Reseña del editor:

Following rapid economic growth in recent decades, Asia and the Pacific experienced an impressive reduction in extreme poverty, but this drop was not uniform and achievements are still incomplete. Vulnerability to natural disasters, the increasing impact of climate change and economic crises should all be taken into account. There is also a need to consider the multidimensional nature of poverty and the non-uniformity of the decrease across different ethnic groups. This book explores the Asian 'poverty miracle' and argues for the development and use of an Asia-specific poverty line. This is a timely and multidimensional assessment of the much-neglected issues of, and links between, poverty, vulnerability, and ethnicity in Asia. It will be of great interest to lecturers and researchers of Asian development and economics, along with policy makers, public and private institutions, NGOs, and international aid agencies.
