About this book

Critical introduction to the changing geographies of global development. It moves away from the traditional approach of providing descriptive accounts of Third World geographical issues, and instead finds alternative geography of development theories and practices, which show that 'development' has been a pain-staking, protracted and fiercely contested process.

Development Thinking: Where is the Mystical 'Kingdom of Abundance'?; 5. Globalisation, Government and Power; 6. The Dissemination of Development; 7. Theorising Back: Views from the 'South' and the Globalisation of Resistance; 8. Conclusions
