It is unique in that it provides the first truly international perspective on this problem, with contributions from the developed and developing world.

The book explores the role of history and media depictions of poverty and health inequalities in. Poverty has long been recognized as a contributor to death and disease, but several recent trends have generated an increased focus on the link between income and health.
