Think global, act locallyā€¯ is a phrase often used to describe the importance of popular activism and an awareness of the issues surrounding globalisation and development. This book is an accessible and comprehensive introduction to key concepts in development that are central to understanding the causes of poverty, inequality and injustice in the global North and South. This second edition of the book contains new chapters on climate change, neoliberalism, child labour, popular movements in Latin America and the development process in Africa. Existing chapters have been revised and completely updated to analyse the impact of the global economic recession on international development. Students of development studies and NGO practitioners will find this collection invaluable as they explore opportunities for study and fieldwork. Printed Pages: 320.
