"Under Development: Gender is ... clearly about concepts and viewpoints that influence our thinking on gender and development. ... provide a history of feminist thought on development, summarising and analysing a body of literature very valuable to both old and new generations of those concerned with development issues and intentions. ... provides a valuable set of signposts for those engaged in development work, of which we should all take notice, whether we are academics and researchers or practitioners, or both." (Ines Smyth, Gender & Development, Vol. 23 (3), November, 2015)
