"This Encyclopedia is substantially larger than the earlier edition which reflects the economic turmoil of the Great Recession of 2007-2008 and the ensuing global financial crisis... The SAGE Encyclopedia of World Poverty is a solid taxonomy which addresses the tenacity of poverty around the globe. This research source will be useful in academic libraries and will benefit college students and researchers. Recommended."
"The authors' succinct entries, which include recommended readings and cross-references, thoroughly explore ways in which poverty is experienced, perpetuated, and combated around the globe. Recommended for all libraries that do not already own the first edition, and worth considering as an update for those that do... Summing up: Recommended. All libraries. All levels."
“This is substantially larger than the previous edition, likely reflecting the rising level of economic crisis. The new volumes display the same attention to quality “encyclopedia craft” as the first, with 175 new articles and an increase to about 900 articles overall… Libraries that purchased the first edition should seriously consider updating in print or electronic format.”
