NEW 3rd edition of Intro to Int. Development now available

Dear CASID Members,


We would like to announce the publication of Introduction to International Development, 3rd edition, a textbook for introductory courses in IDS.  The book has been significantly expanded and redesigned
for 2017, including new chapters on gender, climate change, emerging economies, and development practice.  It is designed for students with little prior knowledge of development issues and each chapter provides an overview of the issue at hand. It comes with
a companion website with extensive instructor resources (powerpoints for each chapter, test bank).  The book is in stock now, and is available from Oxford University Press Canada (ISBN: 0199018901).

A desk copy can be ordered through the website, or via your Oxford representative.  See:


Sincerely, Paul Haslam, Jessica Schafer and Pierre Beaudet (editors)
