Venables and Guanghua Wan -- Methodological issues -- Poverty mapping with aggregate census data : what is the loss in precision? / Nicholas Minot and Bob Baulch -- A decomposition analysis of regional poverty in Russia / Stanislav Kolenikov and Anthony Shorrocks -- Trade liberalization and spatial inequality : a methodological innovation in Vietnamese perspective / Henning Tarp Jensen and Finn Tarp -- Inequality in Asia -- Fifty years of regional inequality in China : a journey through central planning, reform and openness / Ravi Kanbur and Xiaobo Zhang -- Income inequality in rural China : regression-based decomposition using household data / Guanghua Wan and Zhangyue Zhou -- Divergent means and convergent inequality of incomes among the provinces and cities of urban China / John Knight, Li Shi and Zhao Renwei -- Industrial location and spatial inequality : theory and evidence from India / Somik V. Lall and Sanjoy Chakravorty -- Spatial horizontal inequality and the Maoist insurgency in Nepal / S.

Summary: Spatial disparities are a measure of the unequal distribution of income, wealth, power and resources between peoples in different locations. As a dimension of overall inequality, spatial disparities have added signifi cance when combined with regional divisions and political and ethnic tensions that can undermine social and political stability. The accurate measure-ment of spatial disparities and the analysis of their causes and consequences are therefore of particular importance. This book focuses on issues of poverty and inequality that are directly related to the Millennium Development Goals.
