Palgrave Advances in Development Studies Reviews

'This is, quite simply, the best thing on development that I have read in many, many years. Its range and depth, both descriptively and theoretically, and its cohesiveness from chapter to chapter, are all truly remarkable. Hettne's chapter on development discourses is a masterpiece of theoretical clarity and insight, as is Kamrava's on democracy and democratization.' - Professor Michael Fleet, Marquette University, USA
