9781856494731: The Post-Development Reader

Most scholars and practitioners are now agreed that the world is on the threshold of a completely new era in the history of development. This Reader brings together in a powerfully diverse, but ultimately coherent, statement some of the very best thinking on the subject by scholars and activists from both North and South. They provide a devastating critique of what the mainstream paradigm has in practice done to the peoples of the world and to their richly diverse and sustainable ways of living. They also present some of the essential ideas out of which the victims of development are now constructing new, humane, culturally and ecologically respectful modes of development.

'A monument to the vigour of commonsense in resisting the belief that progress can be likened to a law of nature. This book is a primer for reflection on the fertile potential of the loss of 20th century certainties.' - Ivan Illich
