Product description

Review

"In this accessible, lucid, and beautifully organised book, Katie Willis combines up-to-date conceptual summaries with nicely worked empirical examples to illuminate contemporary development policy and practice. This book is both a major scholarly achievement and magnificent guide for those new to the subject. Bravo."  Dr. Craig Jeffrey, University of Oxford, UK.

"Students will appreciate the clear way complex ideas are discussed in this wide-ranging introduction to development. This is a remarkably comprehensive book that will inform and stimulate readers interested in what 'development' means. With up to date examples drawn from around the world, this book will help readers appreciate the diversity of ways in which development theories of different types get put into practice."  Professor Sue Roberts, University of Kentucky, USA.

'Theories and Practices of Development is a clear and concise introductory text which provides an excellent and accessible 'way in' for undergraduate students to critically engage with a range of contemporary development debates.'

'Willis provides an up-to-date and thoroughly readable overview of approaches to development past and present.

Katie Willis weaves together diverse and engaging case study examples from around the world with a balanced synthesis of the complex topic that is development.' - The Geographical Journal 2006
