Abstract

Introduction to International Development integrates the work of leading experts from disciplines as varied as geography, history, sociology, political science, economics, gender studies, and anthropology. Contributed chapters present foundational overviews as well as in-depth coverage of issues at the heart of today's most pressing international debates. In addition to a new part focussed exclusively on the practice of international development with six new chapters on measuring poverty, planning projects, development ethics, humanitarian assistance, and global poverty reduction, this edition has new chapters on alternatives to development, gender and development, China and the emerging economies, and climate change.
