"One of the best works to have appeared in the field ofdevelopment studies in recent years. It is thorough in its coverageof issues and contemporary themes related to development, it isinsightful and judicious in its treatment of the various topics, itis of utility to both generalists and specialists alike, and it iswritten in a style that is lucid and free of jargon. I stronglyrecommend it to anyone interested in the study ofdevelopment."
