Book launch: From Poverty to Power (2nd edition)

31 January 2013 | 17:00-19:00 | Seminar

Rupert Beckett Lecture Theatre, University of Leeds

Rooted in decades of Oxfam’s experience across the developing world, Duncan Green’s book From Poverty to Power argues that a radical redistribution of power, opportunities, and assets is needed to break the cycle of poverty and inequality and to give poor people power over their own destinies. The forces driving this transformation are active citizens and effective states. The book has received great acclaim since it was first published in 2008, and it has been translated into Korean, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. The updated version published in October 2012 is set to reach an even wider audience, helping to spark debate about key issues in International Development today.

The book has been updated throughout with the latest statistics and with a new section summarising the human impact of the global financial and food price chaos of the last 5 years. It looks at new thinking and research in relation to the Arab Spring and climate change, and incorporates large amounts of analysis from the From Poverty to Power blog. 

Duncan Green is Senior Strategic Advisor at Oxfam GB. His book from Poverty to Power has been produced with the support of Oxfam International.

The book presentation will be followed by a book signing.
