About this book

Fukuyama-esque critique of the post-war development process which seeks to explain why development of the South has caused so much damage. Norgaard argues that even environmentally friendly concepts like sustainable development are dangerous. He advocates a co-evolutionary paradigm, in which peoples develop in relation to their environment; they neither control it, nor are they at its mercy. Acknowledging this means embracing diversity and rejecting modernism.
