Description - Place, Migration and Development in the Third World by Lawrence A. Brown

Examining the nature of Third World development, its link with population movements and regional change, and the importance of 'place' within these processes, the perspectives of Place, Migration and Development in the Third World depart markedly from typical approaches and offer an alternative to conventional thinking. Although development has been the subject of academic study for more than three decades, established conceptualisations are often unsuitable for understanding the process at the local level. This book attempts to work from locales outwards rather than beginning by imposing generalisations upon them. This puts a high premium on knowledge of the area being studied but without this the study of development is hamstrung - place should be a touchstone against which academic findings ring true. Focusing on how population movements affect development and examining the role of place characteristics within this, this analysis emphasises how world economic and political conditions, donor nation actions, and the policies of the Third World governments themselves are articulated at the local level.
