A key assumption in development literature, Adam Fforde argues, is that development is a predictable process with knowable solutions. As a result, the literature is characterized by a combination of great certainty and great differences of opinion.It is no surprise then, that students and practitioners confronting the mass of competing assertions about development 'truths' become confused and frustrated. ""Coping with Facts"" offers guidance for the perplexed through a penetrating critique of development studies literature. Rather than presenting a general examination of modern development practice, Fforde develops coping strategies that help readers evaluate the contending solutions to problems of development.Fforde cements his analysis with detailed case studies of development projects in Southeast Asia, especially Vietnam where he spent over 30 years. Those eager to chart a constructive career in development theory and practice as well as students looking for an introduction to this vast field will want this book as a navigational aid for their journey.
