Fighting poverty, inequality and injustice: A manifesto inspired by Peter Townsend

Fighting poverty, inequality and injustice: A manifesto inspired by Peter Townsend

BOOK by Alan Walker, Adrian Sinfield and Carol Walker

Policy Press, June 2011

The book makes a academic and political statement in the cause of social justice. It begins with an appreciation of the seminal contributions of Peter Townsend (1928-2009), and applies them to contemporary policy debates.

It brings together many of the leading contributors to current debates in this field, of interest to students and researchers in the social sciences, policy makers, practitioners, and those with an interest in creating a more equal and socially just society.
