Item description for The No-Nonsense Guide to World Poverty (No-Nonsense Guides) by Jeremy Seabrook...

This 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.

Jeremy Seabrook has written more than thirty books (including Travels in the Skin Trade and Children of Other Worlds), 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.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about The No-Nonsense Guide to World Poverty (No-Nonsense Guides)?

Sobering  Jul 2, 2008
I don't know how objective the writing is, but the general picture of world poverty produced by this book makes it painfully important. Generation after generation the world's poor receive a lot of lip service but little if any substantive assistance. If anything, they are subjected to extremely repressive economic measures inflicted as a result of globalization, trade deals like NAFTA...
Read this and Gore Vidal's "Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace". Makes you proud of America (not).
