About this title

Synopsis:

"Worthy of close attention from students of development thought and practice...Committed to alternative, democratic, socially equitable, and ecologically sustainable community development."

--Labour/Le Travail, Fall 2003
"An insightful contribution to studies of counter trends from below against ... the unfettered globalization of democracy and free markets."
--Millennium: Journal of International Studies, Vol 30. No. 2
"A refreshing critique of the concept of community-based development...Recommended for graduate students and faculty."
--Choice, April 2002
*A superior volume with contributions from top scholars

*Explores critical dimensions of community-based economic development in Latin America
Transcending Neoliberalism examines the role of community, participation, decentralization, and empowering social movements in the quest for equitable development in Latin America. Over the past two decades, in the context of an epoch-defining process of globalization, a form of development has emerged that moves beyond the neoliberal focus on both market and state--one that reaches back for ideas into communities that have been created within rural and urban societies of developing and developed areas.
