There is a useful glossary of important terms in the study of development in Haslam, PA, Schafer, J, and Beaudet, P, Introduction to International Development, Oxford: Oxford University Press, pp.499-509. For very comprehensive discussions of numerous key terms see Forsyth, T (ed) (2005) Encyclopedia of International Development, London: Routledge and Desai, V & Potter, R (eds) (2014) The Companion to Development Studies. London: Hodder. Fifty Key Thinkers on Development (2006, edited by D. Simon and published by Routledge (London), is an insightful source of information on influential scholars in the field of development studies.
