Gender and Development
This revised and updated third edition of Gender and Development provides a concise, accessible introduction to gender and development issues in the developing world and in the transition countries of Eastern and Central Europe.
The nine chapters include discussions on: changes in theoretical approaches, gender complexities and the Sustainable Development Goals; social and biological reproduction including changing attitudes to family planning; variation in education and access to housing; differences in health and violence at major life stages for women and men; natural disasters, climate change and declining natural resources, and gender roles in rural and urban areas. There is also enhanced coverage of topics such as global trade, sport as a development tool, masculinities and sustainable agriculture. Maps, statistics, have been updated throughout and their coverage widened. New case studies have been added on Bangladesh, on violence in Peru and India, halal tourism and on garbage collection in the Maldives. The book features student-friendly items such as chapter learning objectives, discussion questions, annotated guides to further reading and websites. The text is enlivened throughout with examples and case studies drawn from the author’s worldwide field research and consultancies with international development agencies over four decades and her experience of teaching the topic to undergraduates and postgraduates in many countries.
Gender and Development is the only broad-based introduction to the topic written specifically for a student audience. It will be an essential text for a variety of courses on development, women’s studies, sociology, anthropology and geography.
