The book is refreshingly amenable to either browsing or glossary/dictionary use. A strong feature of this work is its lucid explanation both of what international entities such as the World Bank do and what terms appearing in newspapers mean--e.g grameen bank, as well as more specific terms. Highly recommended for secondary school, public and undergraduate libraries. -- Choice The book makes fascinating reading and clearly fills a gap in reference works for Development Studies. -David Potts, Head of Geography, The Cherwell School, Oxford Thanks to The A to Z of World Development for guiding us on our way to better understanding of the world. A rattling good book! - Prof. Norman Myers, Editor, The Gaia Atlas of Planet Management The A to Z of World Development is an excellent reference tool. . ..This book should be on the shelves in every History, Geography and Social Studies Department. - Allan Hux, Coordinator of Social Studies, Toronto Board of Education
