Synopsis:

International Development Studies is an exploration of what it is to 'do' development studies as a distinct discipline. It introduces and addresses the fundamental questions that everyone engaged with development - whether student, researcher or practitioner - must ask: What is 'development' and why do we wish to study it? How do the many theoretical, methodological, and epistemological approaches relate to research and practical studies in development? How are development research and practice linked? Intended Audience: Accessibly written, with extensive use of case study material, this book is an essential primer for students of development studies who require a concise, penetrating overview of its foundations. It is also core reading for students and practitioners concerned with the design of studies in the course of policy analysis, sector reviews, or project formulation, management, and evaluation.
