The Cruel Choice is perhaps the most comprehensive, conceptually sound and inspiring general treatment of development I have read. It is a profound philosophical treatise grounded in humanistic sociology. Goulet raises very old questions about the good life and the good society in a new, refreshing and creative way. He does so within a sociological context which takes account of structures which shape , give direction to or deform development. Goulet's work is a welcome relief from the economism and ideology-passing-as-theory of much of the contemporary literature on development - Dale L. Johnson
