9781840641424: Handbook on Development Policy and Management

This important Handbook on international development policy and management covers a broad spectrum of contemporary topics across all the major areas of interest. With over 40 chapters, the book comprehensively explores the many themes and issues of significance for both policy and implementation, and provides easily accessible reference material on current practice and research. The 42 contributors come from a diverse range of backgrounds, and enjoy international reputations in their chosen fields. The Handbook is organised in two parts, one dealing with policy issues and the other with implementation and management issues. The first part, on policy, covers a wide range of economic, social and environmental topics. The second part explores the political context of implementation and development practice and goes on to cover a range of issues relating to management in the public and non-state sectors and the management of development projects. Each individual chapter provides background information on theory and practice, describes the current `state of play', examines prospects for the future and includes an annotated guide to further reading. This extensive handbook will become an essential reference on international development policy and management. Although primarily designed for postgraduate students and scholars of development studies, it will also be welcomed by development practitioners, NGOs and aid agencies.

`. . . this is a book one would expect to find in all libraries and on all development studies reading lists.' -- John Hailey, Journal of International Development `. . . the Handbook is a unique reference tool on international development policy and management. Its format, both comprehensive in coverage and concise in content, will make it essential reading for the growing number of postgraduates studying development policy and management, as well as for public administration, foreign consultants and aid workers in low- and middle-income countries.' -- Andrew Nickson, Public Administration `This Handbook will surely prove to be an essential to the students, practitioners and others concerned with improvement of human condition in developing countries.' -- Pundarik Mukhopadhaya, The Singapore Economic Review `. . . this Handbook offers a significant remedy to the scarcity of material in this important area. . . It is certainly very near the top of this reviewer's list of recommended reading for students, researchers and practitioners concerned with development policy.' -- Michael Tribe, Development Policy Review `. . . the Handbook offers an excellent one volume survey of modern development policy and practice in poor countries.' -- Tony Jackson, The Journal of the Institution of Economic Development `This comprehensive collection contains an excellent introduction to all the major issues of development policy.' -- Frances Stewart, Queen Elizabeth House, University of Oxford, UK
