The first book to focus on the central role of violence in perpetuating poverty, aruging that if people aren't safe, nothing else matters. Featuring real-world stories ranging from Thailand to Bolivia to India to Nigeria that vividly depict how violence undercuts antipoverty efforts, authors Haugen and Boutros draw from their experience running the International Justice Mission to show that ground-up efforts to reform legal and public justice systems can generate real, positive results
