Routledge Focus on Environment and Sustainability
Linje Manyozo's new book, Communicating Development With Communities has just been published by Routledge. In this short video, Linje introduces the book and why we need to think carefully about the central tenets of development practice - listening, humility, tolerance and understanding. For Linje, to communicate development with communities is not about following templates and strategies that are usually developed off-site; rather it is about building relationships with people. It is about celebrating the virtue of collaborative speaking and contestation as we formulate, implement and evaluate interventions with and alongside people. Professor Robin Mansell has written a Foreword in which she emphasizes the significant role of reflexivity as we think about and do development alongside communities no matter where we come from.
This collection includes a wide range of textbooks covering the areas of Human Geography and Physical Geography along with Development Studies, Urban Studies, Environmental Studies and Tourism.
We are proud to present our Development Studies textbook collection, which allows you to browse our selection of titles focusing on a wide range of key areas in this important field.
