Informative and interesting6 May 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Very informative and interesting. I used this for an international policy of social welfare course in grad school. It was a great read and had lots of information packed into it. The way the information is presented is a bit story-like, which made it easier for me to remember. (And for those who just need straight up definitions and concepts, it has an index/glossary, obviously.) Great stuff.
What is this all about?8 October 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
This is a good read for insights into the inner mechanisms of just what the componets of development do, how they work together and the pros and cons of it all.
