Geographies of Development is an innovative and comprehensive introductory textbook for undergraduate students of Development Geography, Development Studies and related fields. The aim is to move away from the traditional approach whereby topics such as agriculture, industry, urbanisation, trade and aid are dealt with separately. Rather, key topics such as development ideology, globalisation, modernity, gender, ethnicity, tourism, land degradation and environmental sustainability are integrated throughout the text. The theme of the book is that ideas concerning development have been many and varied, and have been highly contested, varying from time to time and from place to place.
