A book that crackles with facts, indignation, and heart. Why hasn't global poverty and hunger really declined in the last decades?...Journalists, aid workers, and anybody who has ever given aid (i.e., nearly everybody) should read this book.--Antony Loewenstein, author of Disaster Capitalism
Sharply argued. . . . Sure to distress the neoliberals in the audience but a powerful case for reform in the cause of economic justice.
Advocates a strategy of development focused less on material consumption and more on meeting the basic human needs. Accessible to all readers, Hickel's revealing and sometimes angry critique will spur deeper thought about the inequities of the global economy.
Penetratingly explores those forces that perpetuate global inequality and shreds the notion that the fissure between rich and poor is anything other than intentional.
The Divide is exceptional, necessary, and essential...Written in a captivating and easy-to-read style, this book must become the standard text for everyone studying, working, or interested in development.--Firoze Manji, editor of African Awakening: The Emerging Revolutions
