In the late 20th century, there has been a rethinking of the whole concept of development, including a growing awareness of its gender, cultural and environmental dimensions, and the impact of globalization. The contributors to this volume seek to extend these debates to a more fundamental level, tackling such issues as the crisis of development as an intellectual and practical project, the need for a break with development as a Eurocentric concept, and the viability of alternative, non-Western forms of development. The contributors aim to transcend critiques of development which simply engage in a blanket dismissal of the whole enterprise and instead offer ways of re-engaging with reality that, despite globalization, is still a dimension of the late-20th century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This volume will provide insight both to scholars looking for alternative ways to analyze and assess government and NGO activities done in the name of development. For practitioners, the authors present a plethora of approaches towards "doing development" that could contribute to conceiving projects that strive for material security while sustaining social development.'
