This is the second edition of the immensely successful text Poverty and Development in the 1990s. Each chapter introduces the student to a key topic, and is written by a specialist author, using questions, diagrams, tables, photographs and chapter summaries to illustrate and clarify the text. Together the authors aim to help students of development economics, international politics, history, geography, and anthropology to see through over-simple analyses
and solutions to understand what is perhaps the world's most complex and pressing problem area.
