Over the past 20 years researchers focusing on poverty have acknowledged the need for more comprehensive approaches to poverty combining the rigour of quantitative methods and reflexivity of qualitative approaches. The present book, which offers a portrait of poverty in the city of Mumbai through a wide spectrum of social sciences – from economics to population studies and feminist epistemology – is aimed at getting a better grasp on some of the actions that could be taken to tackle urban poverty. Besides providing insights into the contours of poverty, this is a good illustration of how to build comprehensive knowledge on poverty and exclusion. It will be of interest to students and scholars concerned with poverty issues and urbanization. Printed Pages: 232.
