While a number of societies have begun to lift themselves out of poverty, many more remain in what appears to be a permanent cycle of failure, inappropriate development and exploitation. Assessing this repetition of development failures, this book critically analyses some of the key features of conventional development paradigms, explaining why they have been less successful in addressing outstanding development problems and offering alternative ways forward. With contributions from development practitioners as well as academics, the result is a novel blend of theory and practice in critiquing the development field.
