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.

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).
