This text provides a critical assessment of dominant features of development theory and practice in such areas as globalisation, governance, social development, participation, feminism and post-colonialism, 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.
