"An indispensable guide ... Spicker’s final chapter is a masterly review of the subject." - David Donnison, Emeritus Professor at the University of Glasgow
'Surprisingly compact, this succinct lexicon explains over 200 technical terms that the student or practitioner of international development should aim to be able to quote verbatim. Overall, the Glossary contains concise and enlightening explanations, like "Fourth World", referring to chronically deprived communities in developed countries, and definitions of poverty in Islam and the Arab world.' - New Agriculturalist
Eliminating Human Poverty. Macroeconomic and Social Policies for Equitable Growth
By Santosh K. Mehrotra and Enrique Delamonica, ISBN: 9781842777732
This examination of how basic social services, particularly education, health and water, can be financed and delivered more effectively departs from the dominant macro-economic paradigm.
