  • Critical Development Studies

    An Introduction

    By Henry Veltmeyer and Raúl Delgado Wise     Forthcoming October 2018

    The first book in the Critical Development Studies is a searing expose of the whole development industry. It is an introduction to the critical approach to development focusing on the needs of people rather than the pursuit of profit.

  • Agrarian Change, Migration and Development

    By Henry Veltmeyer and Raúl Delgado Wise     April 2016

    The focus and concern of Agrarian Change, Migration and Development is the problem of labour migration. Veltmeyer and Wise explore the dynamics and development implications of the migration processes set in motion by the capitalist mode of production. The dynamics of these processes are both international — in regard to the international or cross-border flows of labour migrants — and internal to countries that have undergone, or are undergoing, a process of agrarian change and social transformation.
