Poverty is spreading. There are now as many people living in absolute poverty—almost a billion in the rural Third World alone—as lived on the entire planet only a century ago. Yet poverty continues to be shrouded in mystery.

Consider that: Four-fifths of the world's poor live in rural areas; About 340 million people worldwide are currently chronically ill from malnutrition; Over 500 million do not get enough calories to do a full day's labor; At a time when enough grain is being produced to provide everyone in the world with twice the daily minimum caloric requirements, global hunger is at an all-time high; Half again as many rural women—almost 600 million—live in absolute poverty today as did 20 years.

In an effort to call special attention to this urgent problem, the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), a United Nations agency that has approved more than 300 development programs in almost 100 countries and is considered the world's foremost authority on issues of rural poverty, and New York University Press are proud to be present The State of World Rural Poverty. In the tradition of the World Development Report and World Resources, The State of World Rural Poverty, offers the first comprehensive look at the economic conditions and prospects of the world's rural poor. Certain to become the definitive source of data and analysis as well as an invaluable policy guide to issues involving development and poverty in underdeveloped nations, this volume incorporates research from all over the world.

About the Author:

Founded in 1977, the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) is a United Nations agency with a mandate to alleviate poverty, increase food production, and improve nutrition among the rural poor. Operating more than 265 projects in over 90 developing countries with a total cost of over $10 billion, IFAD has gained a widespread reputation as a recognized leader in micro-economic development for its innovative, grassroots approach.

Review:

"The Global Flow of Information is an outstanding and cohesive map of the dynamic transition to a globally networked society. Subramanian and Katz have brilliantly assembled clear, concise and insightful chapters that enduringly show remarkable interconnections between the internet's power to change information flows and governance and the information flow's power to change the internet and society. A must have, must read book." -Joel R. Reidenberg, Director, Center on Law and Information Policy, Fordham University "Global struggles over the control of information increasingly determine the extent of our political, economic and cultural freedom online. This important and thought-provoking collection offers a much needed conceptual framework for understanding the linkages between globalization, Internet governance, and power in modern society."-Dr. Laura DeNardis, author of "Protocol Politics: the Globalization of Internet Governance" "Subramanian and Katz have gathered an all-star group, offering a sweep of visions for the future of the Internet and its impact on both global and regional culture. These essays are deep and thoughtful, and together they beautifully show us where the Internet can, and ought to, go."-Jonathan Zittrain, author of "The Future of the Internet--And How to Stop It"
