In the last few decades, the idea of development has usually been associated with progress, modernity, and emancipation. The author argues that, to the contrary, it is actually a term that has been used to mask the organizational plunder of resources and instill violence into the culture. He demonstrates this with the abundant use of case studies as well as viable alternative forms of progress.

Book Description Oxford University Press, NY, 1992. Full Cloth. Condition: Acc. Dust Jacket Condition: Acceptable. First Edition. First Edition. 1992. Oxford University Press. Book and jacket are acceptable only. The book has some age toning to the text block edges but the binding is tight. Bound in full black cloth. All inner text is clean. There is a seven line inscription on the front free end paper that appears to be by the author: Claude Alvares. It seems the authors signed off using his last name only. The inscription is also dated: Sept 1992. The year of the books publication. However,I can not verify the authenticity of this books inscription. The dust jacket retains much of it's original color but is rubbed and creased along the edges. A decent reading / reference copy of a book that's been long out of print and becoming hard to find.Price includes a new clear Mylar dust jacket cover installed prior to shipping. Size: 8vo.
