Editors: Francis Godwyll (Cultural Studies, Ohio Univ.) and SoYoung Kang (Westminster College, New Wilmington, Pennsylvania)
Book Description:
This new book addresses the state of poverty and its effects on education and development. It is organized into two sections: Poverty, socio-economics, poverty and gender. Section one focuses on the state of the lives of the people in Africa as a result of poverty. These chapters raise arguments to challenge the status quo as unacceptable. The second section of the book focuses on poverty in relation to gender. It explores how lack of education and inequality of females in the society can impact poverty of the nation in general. These chapters discuss the influential factors of poverty in Asia and Africa. Finally, this section is enriched by looking into effects of globalization on females. It argues that despite the much acclaimed pluses of globalization there is a downside to it that impacts females negatively.
