The world is a better place than it used to be. People are healthier, wealthier, and live longer. Yet the escapes from destitution by so many has left gaping inequalities between people and nations. In The Great Escape, Angus Deaton--one of the foremost experts on economic development and on poverty--tells the remarkable story of how, beginning 250 years ago, some parts of the world experienced sustained progress, opening up gaps and setting the stage for today's disproportionately unequal world. Deaton takes an in-depth look at the historical and ongoing patterns behind the health and wealth of nations, and addresses what needs to be done to help those left behind. Deaton describes vast innovations and wrenching setbacks: the successes of antibiotics, pest control, vaccinations, and clean water on the one hand, and disastrous famines and the HIV/AIDS epidemic on the other. He examines the United States, a nation that has prospered but is today experiencing slower growth and increasing inequality. He also considers how economic growth in India and China has improved the lives of more than a billion people. Deaton argues that international aid has been ineffective and even harmful. He suggests alternative efforts--including reforming incentives to drug companies and lifting trade restrictions--that will allow the developing world to bring about its own Great Escape. Demonstrating how changes in health and living standards have transformed our lives, The Great Escape is a powerful guide to addressing the well-being of all nations.

'There are moments', reflects Rhoda, one of Virginia Woolf s characters in The Waves, 'when the walls of the mind grow thin; when nothing is unabsorbed, and I could fancy that we might blow so vast a bubble that the sun might set and rise in it and we might take the blue of midday and the black of midnight and be cast off and escape from here and now'. Poetry is like Rhoda's bubble. From nothing, the poet fashions an entire world of meaning and sensation. Poets and readers enter that imaginary, frangible world to escape the 'here and now', and, since we must always return to the 'here and now', a good poem must equip us better to deal with, or understand, it. Whether it s the music in which ice-cream-factory workers find sanctuary, as Philip Williams suggests in his prizewinning poem 'The Elvis Shed', or a painter s quest for truth, as Andrew Rudd's poem,'Hiroshige at Work' shows, the poems in this collection provide many alternate worlds into which we may escape. The Cheshire Prize for Literature was inaugurated in 2003 as the High Sheriff's Cheshire Prize for Literature. It is funded by the Bank of America and is administered by the University of Chester. The 2013 competition was for poetry, and this collection contains poems by 26 of the shortlisted poets, including those of the eventual winner and runners up.
