Making Development Geography is a timely new book which introduces readers to the major themes and debates in development geography. It argues cogently that the field is engaged in an ongoing process of reinventing itself as critical development geography, and highlights issues such as identity, globalization, social movements and sexuality. Readers are guided through the key concepts and developments of the last 50 years, surveying the themes of Keynesianism, Marxism and post-colonialism. At the same time, each chapter uses international examples to discuss important contemporary issues so that the real-world applications of theory can be understood.

This enlightening book offers a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental debates for anyone with an interest in development issues.
Victoria Lawson is Professor of Geography at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA
