About my book
Second Edition Now Available
Seismic events have convulsed global markets since 2008, when From Poverty to Power was first published. World news has been full of stories reflecting a profound sense of uncertainty about the global future. In response, this new edition of From Poverty to Power has been revised throughout and also includes a new chapter How History Happens, with an in-depth analysis of the human impact of the global financial and food crises since 2008.
From Poverty to Power argues that a radical redistribution of power, opportunities, and assets rather than traditional models of charitable or government aid is required to break the cycle of poverty and inequality. The forces driving this transformation are active citizens and effective states.
