Summary

This textbook provides a comprehensive overview of theories of development, from its earliest formulations to the challenges posed by the globalizing world of the twenty-first century. Rather than simply discussing theories in an abstract way, this book clearly tracks their emergence and explains how they were influenced by their immediate political and historical context. It also contains key material on non-Western models of development, including Islamic models. Core subjects fully covered include: foundations of development theory imperialism & colonialism nationalism globalization theories of world development. The combination of theory, history and case studies make this an ideal introduction to the subject for all students of development and third world politics.
