About this book

With the use of case studies and previously unpublished material from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, the author demonstrates that the World has learned much about development since the publication of Small is Beautiful and the Brandt Report, but that this knowledge has not been put to great use. This book analyzes what lies behind the failures and successes of the Appropriate Technology movement.
