Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0130605697, Paperback)Geographies of Development is an established, innovative and comprehensive introductory textbook for undergraduate students of Development Geography, Development Studies and related fields. A pioneer of the holistic approach, it encourages critical engagement by integrating key topics throughout the text, such as development ideology, globalisation, modernity, gender, ethnicity, tourism, resources, development aid, land degradation and environmental sustainability. It argues lucidly, convincingly and informatively that ideas concerning development have been many and varied, and have been highly contested, varying from time to time and from place to place. This new edition remains an innovative and comprehensive approach to the subject. The authors have considerable teaching experience in this area and collectively bring first-hand research expertise from: North, West and southern Africa; Asia and the Pacific, and the Caribbean/South America.
