. This should make the book very useful as a textbook for courses and seminars, especially if complemented by the more in-depth coverage of the academic literature and policy debates addressed in our previous book.

Second, our analysis is significantly more concise in this volume, providing for a quicker read. The cost of such conciseness is, of course, the inevitable and necessary simplifications and omissions. Therefore, we recommend our other book as a useful complement to this short volume.

Third, the book has significantly more material on gender and development than our previous work. This is not only an important topic in the field, but it is probably the topic that poses some of the biggest challenges for institutional conceptions of development. Thus, we have decided to address the omission in our first volume by adding a chapter on this topic.

In writing this book, we gratefully acknowledge the research assistance of Lindsey Carson, Susannah Leslie, Joanna Noronha and Kristen Pue, and the logistical assistance of Nadia Gulezko.
