Media reviews
'Short, pithy and well reasoned... There is something in each chapter to challenge, even assault, our dearest, most tightly held assumptions.' - Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society 'Unique...the book is a scream of pain from the receiving end of a process experienced as cultural genocide.' - Guardian 'The Development Dictionary questions the whole basis for twentieth century development through a series of brilliantly written essays by leading writers from around the world.' - Resurgence
