About this book

The thoughts and works of one of the leading commentators on the theory and policy of development are contained in this volume. The book looks widely over issues of Eurocentricism, critical globalism, intercultural transaction, delinking and post-development theory and presents ideas for the future of the field. Throughout, the author tries to connect issues of development with the latest thinking in sociology, critical theory and social science generally.

This comprehensive book will be used as a barometer of critical thought in the field today. The writing has come out of many years of teaching and travelling in developing countries and reflects the author's unusual and detailed experience of conditions in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America.
