The study of uneven development – the disparities in global development and the distribution of resources – is of vital importance and interest to young people, who are often outraged by extreme examples of ‘winners’ and ‘losers’. It also presents particular challenges to geography teachers, who need to reconcile students’ indignation with a balanced investigation of the reasons for these disparities, how they are measured and the changing terminology.

Thinking in terms of a global north-south divide and of ‘less’ and ‘more’ developed countries is no longer adequate: spatial inequality is much more complex than that. For Richer and Poorer? is designed to help teachers update their knowledge and resources of uneven development. It supports a rigorous ‘living geography’ approach that is current, thought provoking and engaging, offering practical teaching ideas and up-to-date, relevant resources for ten innovative lessons to support the GCSE specifications. The lessons involve a wide range of practical skills and learning activities, and explore the links between students’ lives and the key issues of our time.
