Development Geography is an informative and vibrant introductory level text, with a wealth of contrasting case-studies and illustrations. Written to stimulate critical thought and discussion about development, it does not assume any clear-cut distinction between 'developed' and 'developing' parts of the world. Case-studies highlight the problems and possible solutions at local, national and international scales. These include:
* food production in Senegal
* Disney in China
* Hurricane Mitch in Honduras
* corruption in Bulgaria
* further studies from Russia, Bangladesh and Vietnam.
Development Geography is the fifth book to be published in the popular modular text series Routledge Contemporary Human Geography.
