The Elgar Encyclopedia of Development is a ground-breaking resource that provides a starting point for those wishing to grasp how and why development occurs, while also providing further expansion appropriate for more experienced academics.

With concise explorations of over 130 key terms, events, actors, theories, practices, agencies, and policies in the field, this Encyclopedia introduces a broader viewpoint to the ever-evolving discipline of development studies. Entries act as helpful references that clarify key subjects, identify influential literature and highlight correct practitioner procedure.

Key Features:

• Interdisciplinary and international analysis of development
• Succinct and accessible entries that illustrate significant historical shifts
• Authored by experts and emerging leaders in contemporary areas of study such as rising powers and green economies
• Addresses core development issues such as child labour, class, food security, poverty, sustainability and urban development

This essential Encyclopedia will be an important reference for students and scholars pursuing disciplines such as development economics, international politics, development studies and social policy. Development practitioners looking to improve existing practices will additionally benefit from its theoretical foundations and historical trajectories of important events.
