Moving Out of Poverty Book Excerpt:

'No matter if I fall, I get up again. If I fall 5,000 times, I will stand up another 5,000 times.' -- William, a 37-year-old from El Gorri n, Colombia Why and how do some people move out of poverty and stay out while others remain trapped? Most books on growth and poverty reduction are dominated by the perspectives of policy makers and academic experts. In contrast, 'Moving Out of Poverty: Success from the Bottom Up' presents the experiences of poor people who have made it out of poverty. The book's findings draw from the Moving Out of Poverty research conducted in communities in 15 countries in Africa, East Asia, Latin America, and South Asia. The authors synthesize the results of qualitative and quantitative research based on discussions with over 60,000 people in rural areas. They offer bottom-up perspectives on the processes and local institutions that play key roles in escapes from poverty. The study finds that there are no differences in the initiatives taken by the poor, the rich, and the upwardly mobile. What, then, explains the difference in outcomes? The authors demonstrate how in the face of deep social inequalities that block access to economic opportunities and local democracies individual initiative and empowerment by themselves are often not enough to escape poverty. This book will be of interest to all concerned with equity in an increasingly unequal world.

Moving Out Book Excerpt:

Moving Out: A Nebraska Woman's Life is the autobiography of Polly Spence (1914?98) and an intimate portrait of small-town life in the mid?twentieth century. The descendant of Irish settlers, Polly spent her first fifteen years in Franklin, a village with conservative, puritan religious values in south-central Nebraska. Although Polly's relationship with her mother was tense, she loved and admired her newspaperman father, from whom she inherited her love of learning and the English language. In 1927 her family moved to Crawford, a tough but relatively tolerant cow town in northwestern Nebraska. Polly vividly contrasts the cultural differences between Franklin's prudishness and Crawford's more liberal attitudes. Though not raised on a ranch, she came to love helping her husband feed his cattle, deliver calves, and cook for logging crews. She also found innovative ways to attract visitors to the ranch, which she turned into a thriving guest operation. Despite her devastation following several personal hardships, Polly displayed remarkable resilience and determination in her life, and when intractable problems arose in her marriage she exercised the options of a modern woman. In Moving Out she intertwines the events that characterized her time and place?the Great Depression, the intolerance that breathed life into the Ku Klux Klan, and the end of the Old West?with the love, death, and sorrow that touched her family.

Moving Out Moving On Book Excerpt:

Based on rich interview data drawn from a large scale longitudinal study of homeless young people, this book examines the personal, familial and structural factors that impact on homeless young people’s long-term outcomes. While telling the personal stories of young people’s experiences, the book refers to the wider research and policy literature on youth homelessness, engaging with key debates about the causes and meanings of homelessness in western societies. The book addresses important issues such as employment and education, engagement with services, social support, connection to family and friends, as well as personal factors including physical and mental health, sexual practices and drug use. Homeless young people are typically portrayed as leading chaotic, risky lives, trapped in a downward spiral of drug use, mental and other health problems, and long-term homelessness. By giving voice to young homeless people, this book challenges this stereotype and demonstrates young people's capacity to move out of homelessness and make satisfactory lives for themselves. Research findings are positioned in the context of a broad, international literature on youth homelessness and is important reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of psychology, sociology, youth and social work as well as researchers, policy makers and service providers in all western cultures.

Moving Up Moving Out Book Excerpt:

Will Cooley discusses the damage racism and discrimination have exacted on black Chicagoans in the twentieth century, while accentuating the resilience of upwardly-mobile African Americans. Cooley examines how class differences created fissures in the black community and produced quandaries for black Chicagoans interested in racial welfare. While black Chicagoans engaged in collective struggles, they also used individualistic means to secure the American Dream. Black Chicagoans demonstrated their talent and ambitions, but they entered through the narrow gate, and whites denied them equal opportunities in the educational institutions, workplaces, and neighborhoods that produced the middle class. African Americans resisted these restrictions at nearly every turn by moving up into better careers and moving out into higher-quality neighborhoods, but their continued marginalization helped create a deeply dysfunctional city. African Americans settled in Chicago for decades, inspired by the gains their forerunners were making in the city. Though faith in Chicago as a land of promise wavered, the progress of the black middle class kept the city from completely falling apart. In this important study, Cooley shows how Chicago, in all of its glory and faults, was held together by black dreams of advancement. Moving Up, Moving Out will appeal to urban historians and sociologists, scholars of African American studies, and general readers interested in Chicago and urban history.

MOVING OUT Tweet Book01 Book Excerpt:

Moving to college can be exciting, yet daunting. High school seniors leaving their childhood homes and heading to college receive lots of advice--from parents, siblings, counselors, and, of course, online. Even so, the guidance they will find in "'#MOVING OUT tweet'" presents unique value. That's because this new book represents the collective firsthand experience of four college students with rich and diverse experiences and with genuine intent to help out young people taking their first steps away from home. The authors--Santa Clara University students Gabrielle Jasinski, Eliza Lamson, Elizabeth Wassmann, and Hannah Miller--understand and respect the all-too-common dilemmas of college freshmen. How do I cook? "What" do I cook? Who will do my laundry? Where do I go when I just need a hug? Addressing these basics first, the authors then move on to provide guidance that goes beyond the essentials and actually focus on enriching and adding breadth to the college experience. Young college students themselves, the authors know that the unknown can be frightening. No matter how excited students might be to move to college, it is totally understandable to feel a tinge of nerves. And students are not the only ones feeling nervous; parents feel anxiety, too. It is clear that the authors understand this, because they address parental concerns with skill and empathy. "'#MOVING OUT tweet'" follows a six-step progression, starting with the pre-move period (typically the senior year of high school) to the long-term--the four years of college and beyond. Written in the easy-to-absorb tweet format, the book will help students to familiarize themselves with many aspects of this new world away from home. Parents too will find immediate value in this book, as it helps their children make a smoother, easier transition to college life. Ultimately, this book will work as a support system for students during and after the big move and will provide answers to the questions that come up during this time of intense change and excitement. "'#MOVING OUT tweet'" is part of the THiNKaha series whose slim and handy books contain 140 well-thought-out quotes (tweets/ahas).

Moving Out of Poverty Book Excerpt:

The words of US President John F. Kennedy, "the rising tide lifts all boats," can be applied to inclusive growth in contemporary Asia, where the poor are able to participate in and benefit from economic growth. Moving Out of Poverty explores three channels through which economic growth confers gains to the poor and improves the status of women. The first is creation of productive employment, as labor is typically the most abundant asset of the poor, and economic growth has created jobs in labor-intensive sectors. The second is investment in schooling which, coupled with increased opportunities to earn income, has elevated womens' status in society. The third is increased availability of improved infrastructure, which directly impacts increasing household income from wage work and self-employment activities. This book will be of great value to development economists, students and researchers interested in rural economies in Asia, and policymakers engaged in poverty reduction.

Mount Up We re Moving Out The World War II Memoir of an Armored Car Gunner of D Troop 94th Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron Mechanized 14th Armored Division Book Excerpt:

Merriam Press World War II Memoir The author manned a .50-cal. machine gun in a "Peep" (jeep) as a member of D Troop, 94th Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron, Mechanized, 14th Armored Division. Later, he became the gunner of an M8 armored car. The story starts with their shipment overseas on the troopship Gen. James A. Parker, landing in Marseilles, France. Their first foray into combat is in early December 1944. The rest of the story unfolds as the author and his unit move inexorably towards Germany and the end of the war. The story will be familiar to all veterans, with episodes of camaraderie, laughter, combat, fear, losses, tears, peace and joy. This is not a war story, nor is it a story about war; rather it is a story about men whose lives happened to become entangled in a war. 71 photos/illustrations. "I have just finished reading your Troop D memoir and I find that I react to it more strongly than I ever have to any war novel, movie, etc. Perhaps because it is the real thing. I honestly don't see how you kept your sanity and would have liked to sit at your feet and have you tell me how you did it. I think that it is all the more telling because it is so understated — leaving so much to the reader to "fill in" with his own imagination and experience. I loved reading about you and how you felt, but it really leaves me with a deep understanding of what war is and why we must be so careful about getting ourselves involved in everything that is going on today." —John Wood

From Popping out to Moving out a Guide to Growing up Good Book Excerpt:

While the texts are virtually identical, there are two differently illustrated versions of "A Guide To Growing Up Good." Acting on the advice of many reviewers of all races, it was felt that readers of color might better relate to characters with whom they most often interact in their own immediate family circles. For that reason, the version with the "Black" suffix when ordering, and with a small letter "B" in the lower right hand corner of the cover, shows the main narrator, their family, and the majority of others with key roles in their lives, as primarily people of color. By contrast, in the version without the "Black" suffix, the main actors are White, or light skinned. This is meant to make clear the critical message that character, decency, and universal truths of love, goodness, and importance of family are absolutely color blind. That self evident fact having been made about the messenger, let's get to the book itself, and its unique way of delivering its message. Suddenly I’m rudely evicted from Mommy’s moist, dark, but totally protective care. Strangers with blue masks are oohing and aahing. Then they spank me! I can’t talk, but I sure can see what’s going on. Attacking a defenseless little creature. Wow! Then time goes on. I tell you about every bump in the pot-holed road of life as I grow up. Like how I feel when Mommy is having another baby. When bribed to use the potty. When schoolmates make fun of kids who look different. When my body starts to change. When one of my best friends gets cancer. When I learn to drive. Or, scariest of all, when high school days are over, and the time has come to leave the loving nest in which I had been shielded by my family since that first spank. Some milestones are light and cutesy; others really touching and emotional. But such is life......

Moving Out of Poverty Book Excerpt:

'To take birth as a poor man itself is a big punishment. We are facing many difficulties and there is none to support us. We cannot die also. ... Our condition is like applying perfumed oil to mustache when there is no food to eat.' - Male focus group discussion, Appipuram, Andhra Pradesh India has experienced accelerating growth in the last 10 years, yet millions of Indians remain mired in poverty. Why? Most books on growth and poverty reduction are dominated by the perspectives of policy makers and academic experts. 'Moving Out of Poverty: The Promise of Empowerment and Democracy in India' brings together the voices of poor men and women from 300 villages across Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal, as it seeks to understand how these people have managed to escape poverty, while others remain stuck, and still others fall into poverty. The study explores the role of institutions such as family, markets and local panchayats, and factors such as aspiration, empowerment, social exclusion and conflict, health and asset accumulation, in explaining escape from poverty and falling into poverty.

Moving In and Out of Islam Book Excerpt:

Embracing a new religion, or leaving one’s faith, usually constitutes a significant milestone in a person’s life. While a number of scholars have examined the reasons why people convert to Islam, few have investigated why people leave the faith and what the consequences are for doing so. Taking a holistic approach to conversion and deconversion, Moving In and Out of Islam explores the experiences of people who have come into the faith along with those who have chosen to leave it—including some individuals who have both moved into and out of Islam over the course of their lives. Sixteen empirical case studies trace the processes of moving in or out of Islam in Western and Central Europe, the United States, Canada, and the Middle East. Going beyond fixed notions of conversion or apostasy, the contributors focus on the ambiguity, doubts, and nonlinear trajectories of both moving in and out of Islam. They show how people shifting in either direction have to learn or unlearn habits and change their styles of clothing, dietary restrictions, and ways of interacting with their communities. They also look at how communities react to both converts to the religion and converts out of it, including controversies over the death penalty for apostates. The contributors cover the political aspects of conversion as well, including debates on radicalization in the era of the “war on terror” and the role of moderate Islam in conversions.

House Sharing and Young Adults Book Excerpt:

House Sharing and Young Adults offers unique insight into the dynamics of successful house sharing among young adults and questions some of the myths fostered by the negative stereotyping of housemates. Illustrated with research from interviews with young adults, it explores co-residence, interpersonal relationships and young people’s development. Beginning with an overview of the concept and history of house sharing among young adults, Clark and Tuffin’s volume also examines the reasons for the lack of research into the area up until recently. It explores key questions, including how young adults choose housemates, what makes a desirable housemate, avoiding complications, the psychological advantages of house sharing, how conflict arises, and the impact of house sharing on adult development. The authors challenge the stigma of shared domesticity, demonstrating the potential of house sharing to enhance well-being through companionship while acknowledging the potential pitfalls caused by tension in intimate settings. House Sharing and Young Adults will be essential reading for both undergraduate and postgraduate students of social psychology, developmental psychology, sociology and anthropology, as well as those interested in group dynamics, housing demographics and discrimination.

Emerging Adulthood Book Excerpt:

In recent decades, the lives of people in their late teens and twenties have changed so dramatically that a new stage of life has developed. In his provocative work, Jeffrey Jensen Arnett has identified the period of emerging adulthood as distinct from both the adolescence that precedes it and the young adulthood that comes in its wake. Arnett's new paradigm has received a surge of scholarly attention due to his book that launched the field, Emerging Adulthood. On the 10th Anniversary of the publication of his groundbreaking work, the second edition of Emerging Adulthood fully updates and expands Arnett's findings and includes brand new chapters on media use, social class issues, and the distinctive problems of this life stage. In spite of the challenges they face, Arnett explains that emerging adults are particularly skilled at maintaining contradictory emotions--they are confident while being wary, and optimistic in the face of large degrees of uncertainty. Merging stories from the lives of emerging adults themselves with decades of research, Arnett covers a wide range of topics, including love and sex, relationships with parents, experiences at college and work, and views of what it means to be an adult. He also refutes many of the negative stereotypes about emerging adults today, finding that they are not "lazy" but remarkably hard-working in most cases, and not "selfish" but rather concerned with making a contribution to improving the world. As the nature of American youth and the meaning of adulthood further evolve, Emerging Adulthood will continue to be essential reading for understanding the face of modern America.
