This is a bibliography for learning about international development, a selection of books, articles and blogs that are valuable reading for anyone who wants to understand and practice international development.

This is not exhaustive, but just gives the very basics as a starting point. Books are often good for theory and background, articles for technical information and detail, and blogs for the on the ground perspective and a peek into the industry of development. Theory helps little in getting a sense of how development work gets done. But to do this work well, it is important to understand the background picture of what development is and what its goals are.
