Steve Wiggins, Journal of Development Studies this book ... has much to commend it
Steve Wiggins, Journal of Development Studies This is a good guide to those entering the subject with little prior knowledge
Steve Wiggins, Journal of Development Studies Professor Ellis is to be congratulated. Not for the first time, he has produced a book whose chapters can readily be added to student reading lists
Steve Wiggins, Journal of Development Studies In a field where there has been much excitement and debate over the last two years, little of this has been overtaken by events: a tribute oto the author's ability to present lucidly mainstream positions and yet still incorporate insights from some interesting but less well known work
Mary Tiffen, Development Policy Review The great virtue of Ellis's book is that it summarises the literature, and seeks to define the terms in a way that will enable future discussion to proceed from a common base
