Additional Book Details
Walking through social development’s key theoretical principles and practice strategies, this book shows how it promotes peoples’ wellbeing not only in the Global South, where it first emerged, but in the Western countries as well. It covers:
Definitions and an historical evolution of social development
Key theoretical debates around social well-being, human rights and social justice
Social development practice such as human capital interventions, community development and cooperatives, asset building, employment creation policies and programmes, microenterprises and social planning among others
Future challenges; global poverty, international aid and trade, and global inequality, conflict and injustice.
Complete with international examples drawn from around the world, Social Development: Theory and Practice demonstrates how social development theory translates into practical application.
This book is essential reading for students in development studies, social policy, public administration and social work, and for policymakers and development practitioners everywhere.
James Midgley is the Harry and Riva Specht Professor of Public Social Services at the School of Social Welfare, University of California, Berkeley.
