About this book


Written in a style that makes it accessible to everyone interested in development studies, not just to economists, the focus of this collection of essays is on hunger, poverty and inequality. Much of the content of the book is based on the author's first-hand experience in, for example, Ethiopia and China, and his views on foreign aid and the debt crisis will make controversial and provocative reading.
