CALL FOR BOOK REVIEWS
The e-journal Rethinking Development and Inequality (RDI) is inviting reviews on books addressing development and inequality in the Global South. We expect to receive reviews of single titles and will also entertain reviews covering two or more books from a comparative and critical perspective. The works under review should have been recently published. Reviews should be between 1000 and 4000 words in length and include a title, complete reference of the works being examined, and a short biographical paragraph about the author. The following list suggests titles to be reviewed, however, this is not exhaustive and we welcome reviews of other relevant titles.
Proposed book reviews should be sent by May, 1st, 2012 to rdi.contact@andir_south.org
