Globalization and Development
A GlossaryIn this comprehensive glossary, the reader will find the necessary definitions needed to navigate the labyrinth of terms and phrases used in development literature. Unlike traditional dictionaries, this guide explains the origin of terms and places definitions within the historical context of the literature. It provides an up-to-date guide to all the terms and definitions dealing with development studies. Mason has also included information on development institutions and many of the journals and publications that have emerge from the development field. Here the reader will find clear definitions for concepts such as "dependency theory," "democratization," "gender and development," "globalization," "participation" and "patriarchy." For all those who have had to grapple with this terminology, the explanations can now be found in this complete guide.
