Science and Starvation: An Introduction to Economic Development focuses on the relationship of the advancement of science and the proliferation of poverty.

The book first underscores the nature of poverty, development of the West and other countries, and some principles of development.

The publication takes a look at the discrepancy of living conditions in different countries, wherein it is noted that countries in the West have better living conditions due to the tremendous growth in science and technology in their sector.
