Abstract: This edited volume introduces selected concerns in contemporary development studies from the perspectives of Tanzanian and Zambian scholars. The volume is a product of a three-year project Developing development studies – Phase II which was funded through a higher education institution institutional capacity building (HEI ICI) instrument supported by CIMO and the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs. The participating institutes included Universities of Helsinki and Jyväskylä from Finland, Universities of Dar es Salaam, Dodoma and Sokoine from Tanzania, and the University of Zambia. The main contributors represent the young generation of development scholars who teach at the Institutes of Development Studies. The book is divided into five sections. The thematic sections deal with concerns related to natural resources, decentralization and governance, social accountability, and livelihoods. After four substantial sections, the identity of the discipline itself, its knowledge practices, disciplinary relations and history are discussed. The volume is an inviting introduction to issues struggled with in present development studies. The chapters provide a prism to the contemporary development concerns that are to be addressed both at local and global arenas.
