Details

World development is an increasingly important aspect of A-level studies in Geography and growing numbers of students are taking it as an A-level course in its own right. There is, however, no standalone core textbook offering an introduction to all the key issues in World Development – this book fills that void and will be invaluable to all Geography teachers.

The book functions as a core textbook introducing the key topics but each chapter also includes case studies, supplemented by updated case studies on this web page. Attractively and colourfully designed, the book benefits from the long experience of New Internationalist magazine – a regular and invaluable resource for Geography teachers for three decades – in making complex world issues easily understood, using clear and colourful charts and graphs.

Among the key questions addressed are:

What is development and how can it be measured?
Why are some countries more developed than others?
Why do levels of development vary between countries and regions?
What are the links between globalization and development?
How does population growth affect development?
Is aid or trade more beneficial in development terms?
How do health issues impact on development?
How have HIV and AIDS affected development in Africa?
What part does the position of women play in development?
How have the Millennium Development Goals served development?
Can development ever be environmentally sustainable?
