"Readings in Gender and Development: Engendering National and Global Policies" is a comprehensive and intellectually rich compendium of a carefully crafted synthesis of the major themes associated with 'gender and development'. It covers a wide spectrum of issues of concern to women. With gender inequality at the core, topics covered include poverty as capability deprivation, advertising and the exploitation of female sexuality, globalization's impact on women's welfare, gender-based violence, war and conflict situations, refugee issues, human trafficking issues, HIV/AIDS pandemic, ICTs and the digital divide, the role of microfinance in women's empowerment, and so on. The role of the international community in tackling these issues is always present. With its unique qualities-intellectual rigor, language clarity, accessible style and focus on the theme -this book shows that, until women's issues are effectively incorporated into development policies both nationally and globally, progress will not be achieved. "Readings in Gender and Development: Engendering National and Global Policies" is very engaging, and is therefore appropriate for academics, research and training institutes, and civil society organizations and non-government organizations that are leading or participating in gender and development initiatives in their respective countries, but more especially, students. A sociologist with specialization in "Gender and Development," Dr. Chineze J. Onyejekwe is currently adjunct faculty at the Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, Arizona, USA, Department of Women's and Gender Studies. To broaden her educational career, she took a Masters degree in Industrial and Labor Relations (MILR) and subsequently, a Doctorate degree in Sociology at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria and the University of Durban-Westville (now University of Kwazulu-Natal), Durban, South Africa, respectfully. She believes that living in many countries has increased her understanding of different cultures. Dr. Onyejekwe has also written extensively on various aspects of gender and development issues-with a special focus on women in the Global South.
