Product Description:

In this classic collection some of the world's most eminent critics of development review the key concepts of the development discourse. Each essay examines one concept from a historical and anthropological point of view and highlights its particular bias. Exposing their historical obsolescence and intellectual sterility the authors call for a bidding farewell to the whole Eurocentric development idea. This is urgently needed they argue in order to liberate people's minds - in both North and South - for bold responses to the environmental and ethical challenges now confronting humanity. The combined result forms a must-read invitation to experts grassroots movements and students of development to recognize the tainted glasses they put on whenever they participate in the development discourse.
