Summary "Janet McIntyre-Mills presents a critical systemic praxis to address poverty, to improve governance and to enhance participatory democracy through improved understanding of the way values, definitions, concepts and issues impact on the life chances of people. The book develops a practical approach to public policy issues that have continued to be intractable because of a lack of emphasis on transcultural understanding. Sustained examples help to increase the readability and the accessibility of theory and methodology."--BOOK JACKET
