Development Geography is an informative and vibrant introductory level text, with a wealth of contrasting case-studies and illustrations. Written to stimulate critical thought and discussion about development, it does not assume any clear-cut distinction between 'developed' and 'developing' parts of the world. Case-studies highlight the problems and possible solutions at local, national and international scales. These include:
* food production in Senegal
* Disney in China
* Hurricane Mitch in Honduras
* corruption in Bulgaria
* further studies from Russia, Bangladesh and Vietnam.
Development Geography is the fifth book to be published in the popular modular text series Routledge Contemporary Human Geography.
Rupert Hodder is Senior Lecturer in Geography at the University of Plymouth.
'The book is designed to stimulate critical thought and discussion and that's precisely what it does.' - Joaquina Pires-O'Brien, Contemporary Review
