"Haynes deserves much appreciation for writing such an eminently readable book for students of development studies." Political Studies Review "This informed overview focuses on globalization, governance...and god(s). It identifies and examines the proliferating range of increasingly controversial 'development' issues towards the end of the first decade of the new millennium." Tim Shaw, University of the West Indies "Only recently have world leaders and commentators had to admit that after four decades of their commitment to development the world is more unequal than ever. In this balanced and comprehensive overview of the field of development studies, Professor Haynes sets out the principal issues involved, and relates ongoing debates to current developments, while remaining clear and accessible throughout" Peter Calvert, University of Southampton "This highly recommended book brings clarity into the field of development studies, particularly for beginners. It covers in accessible language most relevant issues, from globalization and international political economy to environment and religion. Furthermore the book handles the essentially contested nature of the subject in an impressively balanced fashion." Bjorn Hettne, School of Global Studies "One of the best works to have appeared in the field of development studies in recent years. It is thorough in its coverage of issues and contemporary themes related to development, it is insightful and judicious in its treatment of the various topics, it is of utility to both generalists and specialists alike, and it is written in a style that is lucid and free of jargon. I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in the study of development." Mehran Kamrava, Georgetown University
