International Inequality and National Poverty is a collection of essays united by a common objective, namely, increasing our understanding of the multitude of forces which account for the persistence of poverty and growing inequality. The volume is divided into two parts. Part One contains a selection of papers concerned with international aspects of the problem; while Part Two contains papers in which national issues are discussed. Although national and international issues are treated separately, I hope to make clear below that there are in fact strong connections between them.
