Format: Paperback
This was my textbook for my class in Sociology. However this book teaches about some history of the countries and how come they are or are not poor. This book discusses the inequities of the different aspects of each country. The book is timeless and should be read by all especially in our economy of now. I think it would also make a good economics book.
