Poverty in World History

by

Poverty in World History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A global survey of world poverty from 1500 to the present day. It looks at major changes in history, like imperialism and industrialization, and assesses what they have meant for world poverty. It brings the history of poverty to life by drawing connections with contemporary poverty, and finishes up by looking at development work to tackle poverty today.

Synopsis:

A genuinely global survey of world poverty from 1500 to the present day, Poverty in World History focuses upon the period from around 1500 onwards when poverty became a global issue, and uses the process of globalization as the chief lens through which to study and understand poverty in world history.

The result is both a tying together of significant strands of world history, and an examination of changing attitudes towards poverty and poor relief throughout the world. This wide ranging study underscores a major consequence of increased cultural and economic interaction among the world's societies, highlighting the similarities and differences in impacts and responses to the resulting 'smaller' globe. Topics include:

  • innovations in early modern poor relief
  • the causes of trends towards a globalization of poverty after 1500
  • poor relief since 1945 to the present
  • poverty, morality and the state.
