The Book Review: David Hulme - 'Should Rich Nations Help the Poor?'
We begin this edition of The Book Review with a clip from Prime Minister David Cameron speaking in 2013 in Liberia during a United Nations meeting discussing new targets for replacing the Millenium Development goals. Those targets expired in 2015 yet in spite of renewed promises to lift the world's most vulnerable people out of poverty the hard faced reality shows there is still some way to go. Last night some 800 million people went to sleep without having eaten: today 19,000 children will die of easily preventable causes....that's one unnecessary death every five seconds. Do rich nations have a duty to help poorer countries…or does aid discourage the poor from standing on their own feet? Those are just some of the issues explored in the new book "Should Rich Nations Help the Poor, by David Hulme Executive Director of the Global Development Institute at Manchester University. David Hulme joined Juliette Foster in the studio for more.

The Book Review: 'The European Union: A Citizen's Guide' by Chris Bickerton
With two and a half weeks to go before Britain votes in the June 23rd referendum on EU membership, the mood on the streets is more like confusion than euphoria. With both sides accusing each other of lies and exaggeration, it's hardly surprising that some people still don't know which way to vote. For many the problem is seperating EU fact from EU fiction...and knowing where to go for impartial analysis. Author and academic Chris Bickerton may have the answer in his new book "The European Union: A Citizens Guide", which tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the EU without telling you which way to vote. Chris Bickerton joins Juliette Foster in the studio.
