Encyclopedia 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 specialties such as medicine.
This "Encyclopedia "provides crucial information for universities, students and professional organizations involved with internationaldevelopment, and those interested in related topics such as international studies or other studies of social and economic change today.
