Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The Encyclopedia of International Development is a large-scale work that concentrates on presenting explanations of thematic concepts and debates associated with "development", both as an academic field of study and as an activity engaged in by governments and aid agencies around the world, thus providing theoretical context and organizational background for the subject. Since the 1960s, most industrialized countries of Europe and North America have identified international development as a routine part of government policy. Today, the practice of international development is still growing and also becoming more complex as more and more countries engage in development, and international development addresses an ever-larger range of activities. Furthermore, many non-governmental and private sector agencies are now also emerging to undertake development work in addition to government bureaux. This growth has been matched by an increase in academic research into the subject as a mounting number of universities offer degree courses in International Development. This title will be an essential purchase for public and academic libraries, international organizations, charities and government departments, as well as for students and academics in the field of international development.

International development is now a major global activity and the focus of the rapidly growing academic discipline of development studies. The Encyclopedia of International Development provides definitions and discussions of the key concepts, controversies and actors associated with international development for a readership of development workers, teachers and students. With 600 entries, ranging in length from shorter factual studies to more in-depth essays, a comprehensive system of cross references and a full index, it is the most definitive guide to international development yet published.
Development is more than a simple increase in a country's wealth and living conditions. It also implies increasing people's choices and freedoms; it is change that is inclusive and empowering. Development theory and practice has important applications to questions of economic growth, trade, governance, education, healthcare, gender rights and environmental protection, and it involves issues such as international aid, peacekeeping, famine relief and strategies against HIV/AIDS. The Encyclopedia treats these topics and many more, and provides critical analyses of important actors within development such as the United Nations and World Bank, non-governmental organizations and corporations.
Contributors to this volume reflect the multidisciplinary and international nature of the subject. They come from social science disciplines such as economics, international studies, political science and anthropology, and from specialities such as medicine.
This Encyclopedia provides crucial information for universities, students and professional organizations involved with international development, and those interested in related topics such as international studies or other studies of social and economic change today.
