Historical roots of poverty: A symposium
The current anti-poverty wave, beginning in the 1990s, has not been deeply influenced by the processes which caused underdevelopment in the past. This is a pity, because historical awareness can help define the processes and institutions which have caused poverty in the past, and provide ideas from the past which can inspire present-day policy. The essays in this volume all use primary source materials to open up pathways towards the better understanding of present-day poverty dynamics in the developing world.
