Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungCritiques the very essence of development policy, especially the complex relationship between policy and practice and role of participation.
Pressestimmen'A superb book, one of those rarities that can change entire ways of thinking. David Mosse is the first social scientist in a generation who can successfuly take cutting-edge insights from academic anthropology and use them to explain practical problems in development. ... For anyone interested in development, "Cultivating Development" is a do-not-miss experience.' --Scott Guggenheim, Lead Social Scientist, The World Bank '[Mosse's] provocative thesis challenges the received wisdom of that world and compels us to examine afresh the politics and ethics of engaging with development. Amid the profusion of literature in this field, this book stands apart as an insider's account that is consistently critical yet steadfast in respecting its subjects. Highly recommended.' --Amita Baviskar, Visiting Professor, Department of Cultural and Social Anthropology, Stanford University
