Poverty: A Persistent Global Reality by Professor John Dixon

This book addresses the long-standing global issue of poverty. An introductory chapter explores concepts and definitions of poverty, the subsequent chapters providing detailed examinations of poverty in ten different countries: UK, USA, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, Malta, The Netherlands, The Philippines and Zimbabwe.
Each chapter follows a consistent format, to facilitate comparison and focuses on the following issues:-
* the socio-economic and historical context within which poverty exists
* the extent and nature of poverty
its causes
* the measures that have been taken to mitigate it.
This book will be essential reading for students of social policy and administration as well as development studies and anthropology.
