"Declarations of Dependency presents a compelling history of civic republicanism's pervasive influence on poverty policy and underlines the importance of political viability within anti-poverty strategies." - Journal of Children & Poverty "This book is potentially ground-breaking and could help re-orient public policy regarding poverty in a way that would lead to the adoption of more humane as well as more realistic policies designed to help the poor" - L.
