About this book
This new edition of American Poverty in a New Era of Reform provides a comprehensive examination of the extent, causes, effects, and costs of American poverty nearly ten years after the passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) in 1996. The author includes the most current available demographic, budget, evaluation, and program data to evaluate the impact of this sweeping legislation on federal and state policies, as well as on poverty populations. This revised edition takes into account the economic slowdown that took place in 2001 through 2003. It examines the state decisions about how to implement PRWORA, and how changes have affected the poverty population and overall welfare system. The author identifies the positive implications of welfare reform along with problems that must be addressed. New features for this edition include an appendix of Internet sources a state-by-state tables of poverty rates.
A noted music critic weaves a brilliantly engaging narrative which puts Mozart's operas in the context of his life, showing how they illuminate his creativity as a whole.
About this book
Acclaim for Berlioz: The Making of an Artist"Berlioz stands as one of the great biographies of our day, and also one o f the great feats of literary sympathy with an artistic genius, filled with a love, knowledge and understanding of is subject that flame up on every page."--Max Loppert, Financial Times"In David Cairns, Berlioz has found a biographer who shares his sense of scale. There is not a dull or redundant page in the whole book.'"--Noel Malcolm, Sunday Telegraph"David Cairns has a wonderful story to tell and he tells it superbly well . . . rich in detail and imbued with imaginative insights that stem from love. It is also written with an enviable blend of grace and energy.'"--Peter Heyworth, ObserverBerlioz: Servitude and Greatness"Epic . . . will stand as a major monument of the history of classical music and will surely, on its subject, never be surpassed."--Alexander Waugh, Literary Review"One of the masterpieces of modern biography . . . a magnificent piece of synthesizing scholarship, fluently readable yet maturely balanced."--Rupert Christiansen, Daily Telegraph"How fortunate Berlioz has been in his latest, perhaps definitive biographer"--George Steiner, Observer"A life brilliantly described as an extended adolescence of unceasing emotional turbulence and creative struggle . . . a generous view of a man who was always exceptionally generous to others."--Robin Blake, The Independent on Sunday"It is always a pleasure to read a book by David Cairns--praise has always been lavished on his scholarship, style and breadth of reading--but what catches us in the end in this wonderful new book is his love for his chosen hero and his music. We finish the book realising that Mozart touches upon all that makes us civilised and that he reminds us of both what we are and what we might be."--Colin Davis
