Discovering child poverty : the creation of a policy agenda from 1800 to the present by Lucinda Platt( )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book charts key British developments in child welfare, child poverty research and state support for children from 1800 to the present day. With direct quotations from key sources, it argues that even in the face of clear evidence of hardship, the response of policy makers to child poverty has been ambivalent."--Jacket
Social advantage and disadvantage( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book critically discusses--from a global and a UK perspective--a spectrum of conceptual frameworks and ideas relating to poverty, social exclusion, capability deprivation, rights violations, social immobility, and human or social capital deficiency. It addresses the advantage and disadvantage from a life course perspective through discussions of family and childhood, education, work, old age, and the dynamics of income and wealth. It considers cross-cutting divides that are implicated in the social construction and maintenance of advantage and disadvantage, including divisions premised on gender, 'race' and ethnicity, migration, religion, neighbourhood, and the experience of crime"--Back cover
Understanding inequalities : stratification and difference by Lucinda Platt( Book )

22 editions published between 2010 and 2019 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bringing together the latest empirical evidence with a discussion of sociological debates surrounding inequality, this book explores a broad range of inequalities in people's lives. As well as treating the core sociological topics of class, ethnicity and gender, it examines how inequalities are experienced across a variety of settings, including education, health, geography and housing, income and wealth, and how they cumulate across the life course. Richly illustrated with graphs and figures showing the extent of inequalities and the differences between social groups, the book demonstrates how people's lives are structured by inequalities across multiple dimensions of their lives. Throughout, the text pays attention to how we know what we know about inequality: what is measured and how, what is left out of the picture, and what implications this has for our understanding of specific inequalities. Importantly, the book also highlights the intersections between different sources or forms of inequality, and the ways that bringing an intersectional lens to bear on topics can highlight and challenge the assumptions about how they operate. Designed for second-year undergraduates and above, this book provides an engaging overview of social stratification and challenges readers to think about how inequalities are embedded across society
Poverty and ethnicity in the UK by Lucinda Platt( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on a wealth of research conducted since 1991, and with a particular focus on the most recent evidence, the book reviews what we know about poverty and ethnicity and provides a detailed and considered insight into the factors contributing to the differing rates of poverty. In addition to outlining the policy implications of existing research, the author also reflects on the limitations to our knowledge and understanding of the issues, which serves as a useful framework for a future research agenda." "Poverty and Ethnicity in the UK is valuable both as a comprehensive assessment of the topic and as an up-to-date and searchable resource on relevant research writings. It is essential reading for all those wishing to know more about ethnic differences in poverty experience and the contributing factors. It provides a sophisticated reading of the literature for students and researchers and a policy-informed take on the research for policy makers."--Jacket

Ethnicity and child poverty by Lucinda Platt( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report aims to significantly develop the evidence base on ethnicity and child poverty. The child poverty rates observed for most ethnic minority groups are higher than the national average; the report asks whether this is due to increased levels of poverty risk factors amongst families from these groups, or whether it requires further explanation. The author also examines a range of different poverty measures and related indicators for children and families from different ethnic groups? including income poverty, poverty persistence, material deprivation, worklessness, and area deprivation? and uses a variety of analytical methods and data sources to build up a detailed picture of how poverty varies across and within ethnic minority groups."--Publisher website
