Summary

The first book in the DARG series,Development as Theory and Practice provides the only student textbook which addresses broad contemporary perspectives and debates on development and development cooperation. It introduces the notions of development and what it means from different perspectives i.e. from the point of view of academics in the wake of the New World Order, regional specialists detached from the field, Third World students of development, and development practitioners. The second part of the book focuses on development aid and examines the changing relationship between donors and recipients, and the effects of these relationships on the wider communities in these countries, and current re-evaluations of aid in principle and practice.

Development as Theory and Practice is an ideal course text for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate courses in development aid as part of degree programmes in Development Studies, Geography, Politics, Sociology and Anthropology. It will also be of interest to researchers and development practitioners and professionals.
