This major new text provides systematic coverage of classical and more recent theoretical approaches to inequality and poverty, as well as a thorough assessment of development in the twentieth century and its prospects for the twenty-first. Taking full account of the impact of globalization, US hegemony, and the challenges of environmental sustainability and community participation, it sets out a range of alternative views, models and paths for development from the UN's Millennium Development Goals to their radical critics.
