About the Author
DAVID GORDON is currently Research Fellow at the School for Policy Studies at the University of Bristol and (since 1990) Founder Member of the Bristol Statistical Monitoring Unit. A biologist and geologist by background, his interest in anti-poverty research and policy first emerged while he was working on securing safe public water supplies in the South Pacific. He has published extensively on the scientific measurement of poverty; regionally specific anti-poverty measures and policy; and the effects of poverty on illhealth, childhood disability, housing and rural livelihoods. He recently coedited (with Christina Pantazis) Breadline Britain in the 1990s (1997). PAUL SPICKER is Senior Lecturer in Social Policy at the University of Dundee. He is the author of several books, including Principles of Social Welfare (1988), Poverty and Social Security: Concepts and Principles (1993), Social Policy: Themes and Approaches (1995) and Social Policy in a Changing Society (with Maurice Mullard, 1998).
