100 Ways of Seeing an Unequal World
Bob Sutcliffe
Price: $ 25

This highly original visual book is designed as a teaching aid - for students in conventional courses as well as readers wanting to tease out for themselves an understanding of the contemporary world in which we live. Tested prior to publication in a number of teaching settings, the author builds on the fact that there is now a large body of statistical information about today's highly unequal world. Presenting it in visual form can greatly stimulate discussion and understanding. Each topic has a two-page spread - innovative diagrams and charts on one side; a short text prompting further thinking and discovery on the other. Ideal as a supplementary teaching tool in Current Affairs, Development Studies and International Relations classes as well as in less formal training and education settings.

Topics include:
* Human Inequality -- between classes, men and women, ethnic groups.
* Inequalities between North and South -- output, jobs, hours worked.
* Income distribution -- North and South; urban and rural; within countries and between them.
* Demographic differences -- men and women; North and South.
* Agriculture, food and diet.
* Unequal integration into the world economy -- production, trade, raw material prices, the profits of multinational corporations, debt, aid.
* The Environment - the economy's uneven ecological footprint.
* Refugees and Migration.
* Armed Forces and Violence.
* The Changing History of Inequality.
