Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
CDD has been the topic of much talk in development but little intensive analysis. This book takes a mixed method approach to look carefully at the outcomes of CDD related to conflict. It's amongst a rare breed of empirical literature where, after reading it, I don't say, 'well, duh'. It's a great read on an important topic.
