Poverty reduction is once more at the top of the agenda in international development with new targets to reduce absolute income poverty by half and reduce other aspects of disadvantage over the first two decades of the 21st century. This important new text assesses the lessons of 50 years of development aid to illuminate the lessons as to what is required to eliminate world poverty in particular the importance of political issues and of listening to the voices of poor people themselves.
