|About the Book|
This lively book challenges everything in development thinking -- arguing that communication is everything. The authors, world experts in this field as teachers, practitioners and theorists, present Communication for Development as a creative and innovative way of thinking that can permeate the overall approach to any development initiative. They illustrate their argument with vivid case studies, drawing on the stories of individual project leaders who have championed development for communication, and using a range of situations to show different possibilities and contexts. Free from jargon, and keeping a close look at how development is actually being implemented at ground level, this book is an important contribution to development studies not just for students but also for development practitioners and policy makers.
