This revised and updated third edition of Gender and Development provides a concise, accessible introduction to gender and development issues in the developing world and in the transition countries of Eastern and Central Europe. The nine chapters include discussions on: changes in theoretical approaches, gender complexities and the Sustainable Development Goals; social and biological reproduction including changing attitudes to family planning; variation in education and access to housing; differences in health and violence at major life stages for women and men; natural disasters, climate change and declining natural resources; and gender roles in rural and urban areas. There is also enhanced coverage of topics such as global trade, sport as a development tool, masculinities and sustainable agriculture. Maps and statistics have been updated throughout and their coverage widened. New case studies have been added on Bangladesh, violence in Peru and India, and halal tourism and garbage collection in the Maldives. The book features student-friendly items such as chapter learning objectives, discussion questions and annotated guides to further reading and websites. The text is enlivened throughout with examples and case studies drawn from the author's worldwide field research and consultancies with international development agencies over four decades and her experience of teaching the topic to undergraduates and postgraduates in many countries. Gender and Development is the only broad-based introduction to the topic written specifically for a student audience. It will be an essential text for a variety of courses on development, women's studies, sociology, anthropology and geography.

  1. Ideologisk dogmatik maskerad som kunskapsökande
    RK94, 6 oktober 2021

    Redan i första kapitlet gör författaren sitt verk en otjänst genom att diskvalificera mänsklig verklighet.
    Janet Momsen har ställt sig i ledet av godhetsknarkande och biologiförnekande västerländska marxister. Att förklara och studera normer är viktigt, och det underliggande arbetet som är att beskriva kulturella och socioekonomiska skillnader mellan geografiskt skilda grupper är egentligen välgjort. Det ringer dock falskt när man tar i beaktning att författaren kan förändra slutsatser ut... Läs hela recensionen
