Development, Space, Power is a critical introduction to the politics of 'development'. Illustrated throughout with contextualized case studies, the work fuses theoretical perspectives from postcolonial theory and political economy to present a culturally informed analysis of the Third World. Organized in three integrated sections - Historicising the Third World in Global Politics; Rethinking the Third World State; and Rethinking Civil Society – the text presents an overview of theory, as well as examining specific themes, like the state, civil society and social movements. It will be required reading for upper-level modules in human geography, politics, development studies, and related disciplines.
