The field of development is subject to shifts in paradigms, and it is important to examine systematically how these are realised in actual practice. Two currently favoured approaches are participation and indigenous knowledge. In this volume's collected papers, development researchers and practitioners share their ideas and experience on the different forms taken by participation and knowledge, not limited to "indigenous" knowledge, in the practice of development. The development encounters" they describe took place in sites ranging from villages in the Amazon, India, and southern Africa to research laboratories and corporate boardrooms in central Africa, Latin America, and the United States. This account of participation and knowledge in the front lines should be of interest to a range of practitioners, analysts, and students of development.
