The international development sector has found itself confronting new challenges to poverty eradication and the promotion of human rights. Climate change has loomed large as a crisis for development practitioners and environmentalists, affecting the most vulnerable in the Global South. The ongoing financial crisis has created recurrent recessions in the global North, while causing budget lines to be reduced for development aid.

This textbook highlights the extent to which the local and global are interconnected in today's globalised economy. It questions the legitimacy of the neoliberal model of development which propelled us into the crisis.

Including chapters on Latin America, China and sub-Saharan Africa, and topics such as debt injustice, gender and migration, this completely revised third edition takes stock of the international development environment as it embarks on new policy frameworks to confront new challenges.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'An ideal lift off point for anyone interested in the issues that underpin poverty and injustice at local and global levels. It combines accessible, informative writing on the most essential international development issues' -- Marina Sitrin, author of They Can't Represent Us: Reinventing Democracy from Greece to Occupy (with Dario Azzellini, Verso, 2014) and Everyday Revolutions: Horizontalism and Autonomy in Argentina (Zed Books, 2012).
'Of global value to a radically changing world. It is essentially a survey of all the issues that affect the global South and shape the global North' -- Hector Maldonado Felix, Faculty of Social Sciences, Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, Peru, and founder of the NGO Asociacion Gestion Salud y Poblacion.
