100 Ways of Seeing an Unequal Worldby Bob Sutcliffe
Synopses & Reviews
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.
* Human Inequality — between classes, men and women, ethnic groups.
