The Poverty Wars: Reconnecting Research with Reality
UNSW Press, 2005 - 158 стор.
Saunders argues that as a nation Australia can afford to eliminate financial poverty. The fact that we don't do so is a matter of choice, not affordability—as the experience of other countries demonstrates. In challenging this idea, this book focuses on how looking at poverty differently can help to make a world without poverty a practical reality.
