 The Women, Gender and Development Reader
 is the definitive volume of literature dedicated to women in development. In this fully revised second edition, the editors expertly present the impact of social, political and economic change by reviewing such topical issues as migration, persistent structural discrimination, the global recession and climate change. With a multidisciplinary approach, the volume vividly illustrates the theoretical debates with an array of case studies from around the world.

This classic, comprehensive reader, presenting the best of the vast body of literature, offers a unique and extensive discussion, a guide to the evolution of the field, and a vital point of reference for those studying, or with a keen interest in, women in development.
