Indigenous peoples and poverty, an international perspective, edited by Robyn Eversole, John-Andrew McNeish, Alberto D. Cimadamore

This book brings together two key concerns in development policy: the urgent need for poverty reduction and the situation of indigenous peoples in both developing and industrialized countries.
