'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, Professor of Economics, University of Massachusetts
