Have you seen the full range of No-Nonsense Guides?
The idea of reducing poverty and inequality around the world is beyond criticism, yet the reality of development can often be confusion, contradiction and corruption. Overseas aid and International development are catch-all terms that cover a multitude of activities - and abuses. Building dams in India, planting trees in Burkina Faso and rescuing street children in Brazil are images of development with which we can all identify. But what few people realise is that the terms aid and development often mask confusion, contradiction, and even downright corruption and deceit.
This third edition guide not only explains clearly what 'development' actually is and does - it explores its political and economic roots in history. It shows what can happen in the name of development, and drawing on a wide range of sources argues for a more organic, social approach with those it seeks to serve as equal partners in the process.

The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
The No-Nonsense Guides are the most accessible and enjoyable means for people with hurried lives to find out how the world really works.
I sincerely hope this No-Nonsense Guide to International Development reaches and informs a new section of thinking people across the world. Let as many of them as possible become supporters of and participants in the new politics of transformation.
It's an important publication and I'd love to spread the word about it.
For many years I have read the New Internationalist magazine with great respect. Many an article I have written, and film I have made, have had their roots in something I read in the NI.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like The Chetna Organic Cotton Project. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about The Chetna Organic Cotton Project: Say NO to pesticides that poison three million people every year, and help make trade fairer at the same time.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
