This book contends that international development must now be understood within the context of globalisation and global environmental decline. Understanding Development critically examines the key areas that have come to define the subject, such as trade, economic growth and poverty reduction, considering ways in which these can be pursued in a sustainable manner. It entails exploring the complex interrelationships between development, globalisation and the environment. In addition, the book highlights the contested and plural nature of development, and why studying it necessitates an interdisciplinary approach.
