Summary

Poverty violates fundamental human values through its impact on individuals and on human environments and goes against the core beliefs of democratic societies. In this volume, H. P. P. Lötter brings these important issues clearly. Drawing on numerous scientific studies as well as his own experience witnessing the systematic poverty in his home country of South Africa, Lötter presents a holistic profile of poverty and its effects on human lives, while also accounting for the complexity of each individual case. He argues that shared ethical values must guide the planning and distribution of aid and that society must reevaluate notions of justice and reimagine the role of the state in order to enable collective human responsibility for poverty's successful eradication.
