100 Ways of Seeing an Unequal World Summary

100 Ways of Seeing an Unequal World by Bob Sutcliffe

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.

100 Ways of Seeing an Unequal World Reviews

'A unique and extremely valuable book. With innovative and clear graphic presentations of information, Sutcliffe provides an enlightening view of the inequalities that plague the world economy. Each image is accompanied by a brief explanation and a short, effective commentary. It is the graphs themselves, however, that are the heart of the book. They are marvelous tools for provoking discussion of complex economic issues, and thus they are exceptionally useful in the class room. It is a new proof of an old adage: a picture is worth 1000 words!' Arthur MacEwan, University of Massachusetts
