Description - Development Geography by Rupert Hodder

Concern for the poor, equity, social justice and the environment, are issues which continue to motivate large numbers. The rapidly increasing globalisation of economic, social and political life, now demands that we gain a wider and deeper understanding and perspective of the issues that face us all. Development Geography has been written to stimulate critical thought and discussion about development. The text does not assume any clear-cut distinction between 'developed' and 'developing' parts of the world. There are pockets of poverty and low levels of development in the richest countries, just as there are pockets of wealth and high levels of development in the poorest countries. Similarities between developed and developing countries extend beyond the existence of islands of poor among the rich and of rich among the poor to embrace institutions, values, patterns of behaviour and concepts of prestige, wealth and power. The developed and developing worlds are not as distant from each other as some would like to think. Development Geography is an informative and vibrant introductory text, with a wealth of contrasting case studies and illustrations. It facilitates a more integrated understanding of development and places development problems within the context of the global economy and society. Topics covered range from population and culture, to agricultural and industrial development. Case studies highlight the possible solutions at local, national and international scales, as well as the problems.
