book on poverty

I found this book on google books about being pregnant and living in poverty. The book is written by Sheila Hunt and she says some good quotes. one that caught my eye was "poverty still exists; it is difficult to define, difficult to measure, and equally difficult to fin solutions." In the book she talks about how her case study gave the women a chance to discuss any problems and issues they have with her open and freely. Her study was childbearing women age 15-28 years old and due to her not having complete acces to different cultures and communities the women are all white.
