Celebrating 150 editions of Poverty

Issue 150 (Winter 2015)

Poverty was first published in winter 1966 and, while its exact format has varied, it has tended to offer commentary on the issues of the day. Looking through the archives, it is striking how many of the themes that were pressing then endure today, as we publish the 150th edition. Here, we reproduce the opening pieces from one of the earliest editions of the journal, together with editions at two key moments in the fight against child poverty.
