Description

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, and 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.
