Quick OverviewWhy are so many poor in a world that is richer than ever? The No Nonsense Guide to World Poverty questions whether economic growth and wealth creation will ever meet the poor’s need for sufficiency and safety.
About the Author: Jeremy Seabrook has written more than 30 books and has worked as a teacher, social worker, journalist, lecturer and playwright. He has contributed to many magazines, including the New Statesman and the Ecologist.
DetailsThis guide questions conventional thinking about wealth and poverty - is the opposite of poverty really wealth, or is it safety and sufficiency? Drawing on experience of poor people all over the world, the author gives voice to those whose views are rarely sought and shows how we all need to live more modestly to make poverty history.
