Development in Crisis: Threats to human well-being in the Global South and Global North, is a provocative, engaging and interesting collection of real-world case studies in development and globalization focusing on under-emphasized threats to growth and human welfare worldwide. Created by two of America's top development sociologists, it targets undergraduates, graduates, academics and development professionals. Crises such as falling state capacity, declining technological innovation, increasing class inequality and persisting gender inequality are considered, along with their economic and social consequences.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This cutting-edge collection expands the domain of the sociology of development to the Global North as well as the Global South, illustrating the explanatory power of Sociology's analytical tools. A must-read for all those interested in development, globalization, gender, and theory. - Dr. Valentine M. Moghadam, Director, International Affairs Program, Professor of Sociology, Northeastern University, USA

Insightful and authoritative. The contributors to the Blumberg and Cohn volume are charting the course for development sociology. And these contributors do not disappoint. If you are interested in the current and future direction of development sociology, this book is a must. - Professor Gregory Hooks, Director, Department of Sociology, McMaster University, Canada

"Bringing together sociological and non-sociological development scholars, Development in Crisis presents an interdisciplinary dialogue on the challenges that face development today and potential sources of crisis in development in the future. Its chapters discuss a wide range of problems and solutions relating to crises in development, based on cases from Argentina to Southeast Asia. In essence, they highlight the importance of greater state capacity and gender-equal citizen empowerment." - Hannah Keren Lee, Environment and Urbanization, UK
