This interactive, role-playing case book is an enormously rich and stimulating way of challenging students to think about the problems of development and how development experts go about trying to alleviate them. One of the most innovative and eloquent anthropologists of development, A. F. Robertson has drawn from his extensive field experience to construct a hypothetical scenario of the sort typically encountered by those who are making development decisions.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Big Catch is not a book for those who believe in rote learning. Highly regarded as one of the most innovative (and eloquent) anthropologists of development, A. F. Robertson has applied the lessons from the field to the classroom teaching situation. Drawing from his extensive field experience, he has constructed an imaginative case study incorporating documents that are typical of the ones development consultants have to use, and in my experience, have a surprising ring of authenticity. This interactive role-playing case book is an enormously rich and stimulating way of challenging both traditional and nontraditional students to think about the problems of development and how development experts go about trying to alleviate them. It should provide a powerful antidote to those who believe that all that is needed is the right attitude. . The whole exercise is further enriched by the author s delightful sense of humor and whimsy. This book is destined to be required material for courses in applied anthropology and/or development. . It can be used to build a course around, or it can be used as a valuable supplement to more conventional courses. Bookseller Inventory # AA29780813325224
