The Critical Development Series provides a forum for a global network of academic and nonacademic activists in both the global north and the south to generate knowledge and ideas that can be used to promote and bring about transformative change and alternative development. The series will feature contributions from across the theoretical and political perspective—works by feminists and Marxists (of all stripes and form), and other critical theorists unified by a common concern, a critical perspective and an activist social justice stance.


This is an essential resource for anyone interested in international development, political economy, the sociology and politics of development, and globalization, indigenous and environmental studies. Click on the links below to visit the individual book pages:
