Editorial Reviews

'The book will be of relevance to those in development studies, sociology, geography, social anthropology, economics and politics. It could be used effectively as a course textbook for undergraduates and, with some selection, as a source of readings and discussion pieces in connection with ahigher-level option.' THES May 2000
