 About the Book 

Betrayed takes a new approach to transforming the lives of the poor in fragile states. Combining the latest research into poverty and state building with the authors personal observations drawn from years working in the developing world, BetrayedMoreBetrayed takes a new approach to transforming the lives of the poor in fragile states. Combining the latest research into poverty and state building with the authors personal observations drawn from years working in the developing world, Betrayed explains how leaders in the developing world can build more inclusive societies and more equitable governments, thereby creating dynamic national economies and giving the poor the opportunity to accumulate the means and skills to control their own destinies. This refreshing new approach will appeal to policymakers, scholars, and practitioners in the development field who are looking for new, practicable ideas- people in both the global North and South who want to see attention focused not on Western aid but on what developing countries and their citizens can do to help themselves- business people who are fed up with reading critiques of global poverty that see capitalism as the problem, not the solution- and general readers who want accessible and engaging accounts of ordinary people struggling to overcome poverty.
