Fifty Key Thinkers on Development is the essential guide to the world's most influential development thinkers. It presents a unique guide to the lives and ideas of leading contributors to the contested terrain of development studies from both North and South. David Simon has assembled a highly authoritative team of contributors from different backgrounds and disciplines to reflect on the lives and contributions of fifty leading development thinkers from around the world. These include:
DT Modernizers like Hirshman, Kindleberger and Rostow
DT Dependencies such as Frank, Cardoso and Amin
DT Progressives like Prebisch, Helleiner and Streeten
DT Political leaders enunciating radical alternative visions of development, such as Mao, Nkrumah and Nyerere
DT Progenitors of religiously or spiritually inspired development, such as Gandhi and Ariyaratne
DT Development-environment thinkers like Blaikie, Brookfield and Shiva

This invaluable reference is a concise and accessible introduction to the lives and key contributions of development thinkers from across the ideological and disciplinary spectrum.

Fifty Key Thinkers on Development is a stimulating and inspiring book… I readily recommend this book to anyone with an interest in development - whether academics, students, practitioners or politicians. There is something there for everyone and it deserves a wide and diverse readership.
