Jeffrey Haynes adopts a chronological and conceptual approach to introduce undergraduate and postgraduate students to the central themes and theoretical perspectives in the study of religion and development in the developing world. He examines the emergence and consolidation of theories of development and explains how and why development outcomes in the developing world are often influenced by religion. Focusing on key themes including environmental sustainability, health and education, this book is an essential guide showing how religion influences current development practice.
JEFFREY HAYNES is Professor of Politics at London Metropolitan University, UK, where he teaches courses on religion, politics, and international relations. He has published widely on international development including Palgrave Advances in Development Studies.
