Product Description


...Colin Leys has provided an eminently readable, well argued and concise survey of western development theory, which provides much of interest for the initiated and novice alike ... an excellent student text... - David Simon in THE TIMES HIGHER EDUCATION SUPPLEMENT ... a welcome and concise summing up...both a retrospective view of development theory and a prospective view of African development - Lloyd M. Sachikonye in THE ZIMBABWEAN REVIEW ... there is a great deal to be learned from this book by readers of any theoretical persuasion. Any intelligent and open-minded reader is likely to find his critique of rational choice theory, for instance, devastatingly incisive even if remaining sceptical of his claim that Marxism is especially well suited to remedy its deficiencies. - Richard Jeffries in THE JOURNAL OF DEVELOPMENT STUDIES
