New Jotwell Lex: Poverty Section & first Review

Jotwell, the Journal Of Things We Like Lots, has a new section, technically a “Lex” subsection, on Poverty.  What this basically means is that Jotwell is going to publish reviews by the editors of that section, Wendy Anne Bach (Tennessee), Tonya Brito (Wisconsin), Marc-Tizoc Gonzalez (St. Thomas), and myself, Ezra Rosser (American), of recently published articles or books in the field.  It should be a good way to highlight quality work and Jotwell has now published the first such review:
