Editorial Reviews

Review

"The decision to bring out a second edition of this widely used collection of key articles on gender and development will be warmly welcomed by scholars and practitioners in the field. The collection has become a standard text in most courses related to this topic. The revised edition will prove equally valuable. The editors have retained the division of the reader into the same five parts that characterised the first edition, but with largely new articles which reflect the way that field has evolved in the decade since the first edition." -- Naila Kabeer, Professor of Development Studies, SOAS
 
"This long awaited second edition lives up to its expectations. The well chosen both old and new entries along with careful, painstaking updates make this a welcome encyclopedic resource for all of those teaching gender and development studies. The editors are to be congratulated for capturing so deftly the huge strides gender and development studies have taken in these last years. The Women, Gender and Development Reader will be recommended reading for a long time to come." -- Wendy Harcourt, Editor Development at the Society for International Development (SID) in Rome and author of Body Politics in Development

I recommend this book because it talks about topics that I feel that everyone should be informed on. I like the way it is broken down into sub topics.
