From the Publisher"From Poverty to Power has been fully revised and updated in this new second edition, and argues that a radical redistribution of power, opportunities and assets is required to make any real, meaningful dent in the cycles of poverty and inequality. It will take active citizens to drive this change, because those living in poverty need a voice in determining their own future and it also takes effective state structures to see this change move beyond the ideal process to full development and deployment. Climate change only adds a sense of urgency to matters, and all are considered in this wide-ranging, college-level analysis of the human impact of global financial and food crises, highly recommended for any social and political studies collection."
"In telling us what can be achieved by ordinary people through organised action, this book generates hope even as it enhances understanding of what is involved in the removal of poverty."
"A tour de force."
