Situating development as a world-historical project, this text traces its contours across three historical periods: colonialism, the development era, and the era of globalization. McMichael shows how the social transformations from colonial subjects, through national citizens, to global consumers have been inspired and managed through successive projects of development, ordering a changing and unequal world. This fourth edition accentuates ecological themes, the gendering of development, and alternative development visions. Updating showcases the paradox of the development lifestyle, ecological footprints, the war on poverty, social reproduction issues, the planet of slums phenomenon, outsourcing, African re-colonization, the Latin rebellion against neo-liberalism, the rise of China and India, and the ever-changing policy face of the development establishment as it seeks to retain or renew its legitimacy at a time when development is perhaps facing its greatest challenge in the ecologically, socially, and politically destabilizing impacts of climate change.

Philip McMichael grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, and is an International Professor of Development Sociology at Cornell University. His book Settlers and The Agrarian Question: Foundations of Capitalism in Colonial Australia (Cambridge University Press, �1984) won the 1995 Social Science History Association's Allan Sharlin Memorial Award. He has also edited The Global Restructuring of Agro-Food Systems (Cornell University Press, �1994), Food and Agrarian Orders in the World Economy (Praeger, �1995), New Directions in the Sociology of Global Development (Emerald, �2005), and Contesting Development: Critical Struggles for Social Change (Routledge, �2010). He has served as Director of Cornell University's International Political Economy Program, as Chair of the American Sociological Association's Political Economy of the World-System Section, and President of the Research Committee on the Sociology of Agriculture and Food for the International Sociological Association. And he has recently worked with the FAO, IATP and UNRISD, the International Planning Committee for Food Sovereignty, and the international peasant coalition, La V�a Campesina.
