AUTHOR

Luker, Kristin

SUMMARY

"[An] insightful, scholarly, and wonderfully readable analysis of Americans' misconceptions about teenage pregnancy and the impact of these beliefs on public policy...Sociologist Luker...asserts that current welfare reforms aimed at reducing teenage pregnancy rates are doomed to fail because they are based on a basic misunderstanding of the problem. In her words, 'Early childbearing doesn't make young women poor; rather, poverty makes women bear children at an early age'...[Luker's] fresh perspective on the issue of teenage pregnancy is an important contribution to the current debate over welfare reform. Commonsensical, timely, and very persuasive."Luker, Kristin is the author of 'Dubious Conceptions The Politics of Teenage Pregnancy', published 1997 under ISBN 9780674217034 and ISBN 0674217039.
