This book focuses on how development victimizes people from different walks of life. Unlike many other books on third world development, this book serves as a voice to the voiceless, the silent victims of development. It highlights real life stories rather than lifeless data as indices of development.

MEDIA REVIEWS
... a well-written account of development's victims based on field experiences in Nepal. Although the examples are from Nepal, they apply to many other developing countries, giving the book an appeal wider than suggested by the title. It should serve as a fascinating basis for discussion among both students and practitioners of development. * Geographical Review *
...intriguing...and fascinating in that he provides insights into Nepal and Nepali life that I missed during my seven years there. For those who have known, loved and cared about Nepal-or for those who want more than a tourist's view-I consider thisbook very stimulating reading. -- Ed Burgess, Former Peace Corps Regional Director and Volunteer in Nepal
