Children of other worlds : exploitation in the global market by Jeremy Seabrook( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Children of Other Worlds examines the international exploitation of children and exposes the hypocrisy, piety and moral blindness that have informed the debate in the West on the rights of the child. It insists that the whole question of protecting children's rights, North and South, must take into consideration the structural abuses of humanity that are inherent in globalization. It addresses the question of whether the West can turn its "benevolent" attention to child labour in the rest of the world."--Jacket

At the turn of the new millennium, the United Nations determined that world poverty would be halved by 2015.

In the cities of the South : scenes from a developing world by Jeremy Seabrook( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book's greatest strength lies in its evocation of daily life, its vivid descriptions of besieged communities, together with the extraordinary individual tales of some of the thousands of migrants who arrive daily in these megacities of the South. Jeremy Seabrook pays special attention to the position of labour in the cities, both organized and unorganized, to the unrecorded struggles of industrial workers in the suburbs of Jakarta, or garment workers in Bangkok and Dhaka. In doing so, he highlights the convergences between North and South which are likely to become sharper as workers in Britain and other Western countries are forced into even fiercer competition with those of South Asia

A world growing old by Jeremy Seabrook( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yet this is only half the story. Populations in the poorer countries of the South are also ageing. Life-expectancy has increased due the availability of life-saving medicine. Child mortality has decreased, so people are having smaller families. India will soon have one of the largest populations of over-sixties. The one-child policy in China will similarly lead to a severe imbalance in the age-profile of the people
Cities by Jeremy Seabrook( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Small Guides to Big Issues is a new series of accessible introductions to the global challenges of the twenty-first century. The books in this series de-bunk myths and raise questions about the global economic and political system and how it works. They are designed for campaigners and activists, students and researchers, and anyone interested in looking behind the headlines. Produced in partnership with Oxfam, each book provides an informative and thought-provoking guide to current trends and debates, and what needs to happen in order to end poverty and injustice. Every year tens of millions of people abandon rural areas of the South for life in the city. With education, health care and even safe water in short supply, cities risk becoming sites of violent conflict for future generations. And yet world governments are doing little to address these demographic shifts. Jeremy Seabrook offers a vivid portrait of the lives of people who migrate from impoverished villages to towns and cities, the changes they face, and the impact these changes have on their psyche and well-being. Contrasting the attitudes of today's governments with those of the past, the book provides a sharp critique of global policies, and an ideal introduction to the impact of urbanisation on modern life

Pauperland : poverty and the poor in Britain by Jeremy Seabrook( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1797 Jeremy Bentham prepared a map of poverty in Britain, which he called 'Pauperland.' More than two hundred years later, poverty and social deprivation remain widespread in Britain. Yet despite the investigations into poverty by Mayhew, Booth, and in the 20th century, Townsend, it remains largely unknown to, or often hidden from, those who are not poor. Pauperland is Jeremy Seabrook's account of the mutations of poverty over time, historical attitudes to the poor, and the lives of the impoverished themselves, from early Poor Laws till today. He explains how in the medieval world, wealth was regarded as the greatest moral danger to society, yet by the industrial era, poverty was the most significant threat to social order. How did this change come about, and how did the poor, rather than the rich, find themselves blamed for much of what is wrong with Britain, including such familiar - and ancient - scourges as crime, family breakdown and addictions? How did it become the fate of the poor to be condemned to perpetual punishment and public opprobrium, the useful scapegoat of politicians and the media? Pauperland charts how such attitudes were shaped by ill- conceived and ill-executed private and state intervention, and how these are likely to frame ongoing discussions of and responses to poverty in Britain

People without history : India's Muslim ghettos by Jeremy Seabrook( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors examine life in Muslim communities in Kolkata, home to some of the most disadvantaged people in India, giving a voice to their views, values and feelings. We see that Muslims are no different from those of other faiths--work, family and survival ar the overwhelming preoccupations of the vast majority. Although most are observant in their religion, there is no trace of the malevolence or poverty-fuelled extremism attributed to them"--Back cover
