5.0 out of 5 stars and all these ingredients blend together beautifully in this book 8 Mar. 2016
By Joshua - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Brady has expertise in sociology, political science and public policy, and all these ingredients blend together beautifully in this book. As his work often does, Brady's 'Rich Democracies, Poor People' provides a thorough, in-depth, political explanation for a social phenomenon from a macro, cross-national perspective. Of particular note is the second chapter on Brady's suggestions for revisions to the measurement of poverty--this is a must read for any social scientist interested in poverty and cross-nationally comparative research.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst things I've ever read! 4 July 2014
By sbc2556 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of most poorly-written books I've ever read in my life! The author does little to drive home the point of the thesis and relies too much on studies and other works to make what amounts to a luke-warm, passionless never ending bore! I selected this for my book club because I wanted to delve into the topic of poverty but ended up apologizing for subjecting them to such a poor work.
