Format: Paperback
Must have book for anyone interested in Development issues and looking for a broad book covering many relevant issues. However, this book is only meant to give you a general idea about these issues and if you are looking for something more in depth you will have to look somewhere else.

Format: Paperback
This book offers a good overview of the various themes surrounding poverty and development, but is it not up-to-date anymore and offers a rather left-of the centre view on development. Funnily enough, Polanyi is given a lot of space and in a way the book prefigured a return in the spotlight of the "great transformation". Many of the predictions of teh authors turned out to be wrong but I guess that if written now it would be difficult to make accurate predictions about what will happen in 10 years. I would recommend looking for something more up to date or to wait for this sbook to be revised.

allen and thomas have put together a high quality, informative and easily read book. the areas covered are diverse and all equally fascinating and the use of tables from areas such as the World Bank help the reader to see for themselves the impact of development upon the world. this book really should be core reading for anyone studying development studies, particularly as this text is so up to date and relevant for study of developing countries.
