As the failings of neoliberalism become evident, the need for a new development paradigm becomes increasingly urgent. This Handbook offers a ground-breaking critical review of development and social change, and in doing so sets out the terms of the debates needed in areas where the orthodoxy has worn thin. The Handbook on Development and Social Change tackles key global topics including sustainability, regionalism and international finance, as well as examining key developing regions from Latin America to China. With original chapters by recognized experts from across the globe with proven practical experience, this Handbook examines the economic, political and cultural aspects of development and social change. Promoting a strong interdisciplinary approach, and integrating knowledge with practice, it moves beyond current development theories which deal poorly with the non-causal and chaotic and thus provides an approach which is fit for purpose in the modern era of global complexity. With its accessible coverage of complex issues this Handbook, will be of particular interest to students in the fields of development studies, development economics, comparative sociology and global politics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`This is an excellent volume. Topics for chapters have been well chosen and chapters are written by authors well placed in the field. This valuable collection provides a rich and pertinent review of the development field.' -- Jan Nederveen Pieterse, University of California, Santa Barbara, US
`Confident and ambitious, this Handbook pushes the debate on development as capitalism in new directions. It offers a critical, sociological - or genealogical - approach, emphasizing capitalism's unpredictability above all. Highly recommended as much for the detail and novelty of the chapters as for the profound commitment of the contributors to global transformation and a more equal world.' -- Jean Grugel, University of York, UK
