The author's own views are social democratic in character. This perspective is relected n this chapter, which is a commentary on the other chapters of this book. The politics of poverty figures hardly at all in the traditions, even the secular traditions. Marxists are interested in political agency but only for revolution, not for any of the more ordinary, day-in, day-out efforts to help the poor. Liberal egalitarians are concerned with the design of a just society but have little to say about its achievement. Libertarians do not believe in politics, except at the margins. Feminists are advocates of organization and empowerment, but their focus addresses only the special vulnerability of women and children. Religious writers often gesture toward the role of public officials in the relief of poverty but have nothing to say about the political pressure necessary to make sure that the role is responsibly enacted.
