Educational Book Review
The sheer breadth of subject matter brought together by the editors in a single volume is an achievement...a very welcome arrival.
The Times Higher
...highly readable book...the reader is exccellently guided through the otherwise inpenetrable jungle of development theories. The Companion should defiitely be considered 'required reading' for development practitioners. ...there can be no doubt that this excellent publication will convert into a classic reference.
