'An extraordinary achievement: there is simply nothing like it on the market, in terms of the scope, depth, and the quality and consistency of the contributions included in this book. This is as close to a critical or heterodox textbook in development studies as we are ever likely to get' -- Professor Alfredo Saad-Filho, Department of Development Studies, SOAS, University of London
'An excellent reference manual in development studies for students, faculty, and practitioners of development matters' -- Dr. Berch Berberoglu, Foundation Professor of Sociology, Director of Graduate Studies, and Chair of the Department of Sociology at the University of Nevada, Reno.
'It is helpful for students to be exposed to viewpoints that are radically different from those in the mainstream. ... Its nonmathematical approach makes it very accessible to a large audience. Recommended' -- CHOICE
'At a time when the credibility of the neoliberal development model is being seriously questioned world-wide there is a great thirst for alternative development debates and paradigms. Tools for Change is an extremely timely contribution that brings together a wealth of critical analysis and information in an accessible format' -- Professor Ronaldo Munck, Dublin City University
