Development Geography is an informative and vibrant introductory level text, with a wealth of contrasting case studies and illustrations. Written to stimulate critical thought and discussion about development it does not assume any clear-cut distinction between 'developed' and 'developing' parts of the world. Case studies highlight the problems and possible solutions at local, national and international scales.
