100 Ways Of Seeing An Unequal World (Zed Books, 2001)

Sunday, November 23, 2008

"100 Ways of Seeing an Unequal World actually offers 123 perspectives on world inequality, each consisting of a two-page presentation with a graph or graphs on the left and explanation and interpretation on the right. The topics covered range across production, income and trade, demographics and health, agriculture, environment, refugees and repression. Sutcliffe pays special attention to regional (rather than just international) and gender inequalities, and attempts to set comparisons in a historical perspective. Some of the graphs take traditional forms, such as maps with different shadings, while others use less familiar formats, for example radial graphs allowing presentation of different figures. They are mostly clear and effective, though the restriction to black and white is limiting." - Danny Yee
