Synopsis: This book shows how participatory government can lead to the unjust and illegitimate exercise of power. It addresses the gulf between the almost universally fashionable rhetoric of participation, promising empowerment and appropriate development. Looking at what actually happens when consultants and activists promote and practice participatory development, this book offers a sharp challenge to the advocates of participatory development. Some contributors look at particular examples of failed participatory practice; others present more conceptually-oriented analyses. Together they provide a new, rigorous, and provocative understanding of participatory development.

About the Author: Bill Cooke lectures in Human Resources Development at the Institute for Development Policy and Management, University of Manchester.

Uma Kothari is a development consultant, and now teaches at the Institute for Development Policy and Management, University of Manchester.

Book Description ZED BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Condition: New. 4th ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book is about participatory development s potential for tyranny, showing how it can lead to the unjust and illegitimate exercise of power. It is the first book-length treatment to address the gulf between the almost universally fashionable rhetoric of participation, which promises empowerment and appropriate development on the one hand, and what actually happens when consultants and activists promote and practise participatory development, on the other. The contributors, all social scientists and development specialists, come from various disciplines and a wide variety of hands on experience. Their aim is to provide a sharp contrast to the seductive claims of participation, and to warn its advocates of the pitfalls and limitations of participatory development. The book also challenges participatory practitioners and theorists to reassess their own role in promoting a set of practices which are at best naive about questions of power, and at worst serve systematically to reinforce, rather than overthrow, existing inequalities. For the recipients of participatory development this book provides critical insights into the history, institutions, and day-to-day activities through which participation is done to them. It provides them with a range of arguments which support the legitimate decision not to participate on others terms. This rigorous and provocative understanding of participatory development is one which donors, academics and practitioners will find hard to ignore. Seller Inventory # AAR9781856497947
