The No Nonsense Guide to International Development

The No Nonsense Guide to International Development

by Maggie Black (Author)


In this text, Maggie Black traces the history of development from its post-colonial beginnings, and examines the relationship between development and economic growth, the impact development has had on the living conditions of the poor and on the environment, and whether development will have a specific role in the future, or whether it will simply be subsumed under the concept of globalization.
