'This exciting book is a tour de force, spanning a broad range of approaches to development. It does not stop at critique, as so many previous books on these issues have done, but offers a unique perspective on future possibilities and the shape of things to come. It should be essential reading on all development studies courses' - Andrea Cornwall, Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex

Praise for the previous edition:

'This marvellous book should be read by every social scientist interested in development studies' - Keith Griffin, University of California, Riverside

- provides an unrivalled guide to the strengths and weaknesses of competing theoretical approaches

- explains key concepts

- examines the shifts in theory

- offers an agenda for the future

In this book, the author brings a huge range of experience and knowledge about the relationship between the economically advanced and the emerging, developing nations.
