World Poverty: New Policies to Defeat an Old Enemy - Edited by Peter Townsend; David Gordon;Policy Press, 2002, Paperback.
Condition: Near Fine.
From the introduction: “This book takes up an international perspective, examines a considerable range of evidence from the poorer countries, including the most populous countries of the world, China and India, and pushes the analysis of poverty from measurement to the policies designed to alleviate it. The predominant concern is with the most populous and deprived regions of the world, growing inequality between rich and poor and the problems of global capitalism, but also the key roles of international agencies, transnational corporations and the politically dominant states. The leadership role of Europe is strongly represented.”.
