Too Poor for Peace?

Too Poor for Peace?
Lael Brainard & Derek Chollet, Eds.
Washington, D.C. : Brookings Institution Press, 2007
HC59.72 .P6 T66 2007

In a world where boundaries and borders are blurred and seemingly distant threats can metastasize quickly, the battle against global poverty has become a fight of necessity - not simply because morality demands it, but because global security does as well. Just as poverty begets insecurity, the reverse is also true. Too Poor for Peace? explores this damaging pattern of mutual reinforcement in its many different facets, bringing the latest lessons and intellectual framework to bear in the search for vehicles to imrove both economic conditions and physical security.
