Reviews
This text provides a critical assessment of dominant features of development theory and practice in such areas as globalization, governance, social development, participation, feminism and postcolonialism, civil society, environment, and development management. Each chapter addresses a particular approach within development by setting out the orthodoxy, and critically evaluates this before engaging more constructively with the challenges presented by contemporary development. This approach will give students a clearer understanding of the debates within development today.
