  • The Bottom Billionby Paul Collier

    Oxford University Press, USA 2007; US$ 14.99

    Global poverty, Paul Collier points out, is actually falling quite rapidly for about eighty percent of the world. The real crisis lies in a group of about 50 failing states, the bottom billion, whose problems defy traditional approaches to alleviating poverty. In The Bottom Billion, Collier contends that these fifty failed states pose the central challenge... more...

  • Breaking the Conflict Trapby Paul Collier

    World Bank Publications 2003; US$ 19.99

    Civil war conflict is a core development issue.

    Mass international migration is a response to extreme global inequality, and immigration has a profound impact on the way we live.

  • The Plundered Planetby Paul Collier

    Penguin Books Ltd 2011; US$ 15.98

    How can we help poorer countries become richer without harming the planet? Is there a way of reconciling prosperity with nature?

Steering a path between the desires of unchecked profiteering and the romantic views of environmentalists, he... more...

  • The Second World War (4): The Mediterranean 1940-1945by Paul Collier

    Osprey Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 1.49

    This book explores the idea that the Mediterranean theater of the Second World War was the first truly modern war.

Victory could not be achieved by either... more...
