"... this ranks with the best books on alternative development... adds to the critical analysis of alternative development and renews it through the notion of popular development. It is one of the most effective, topical and critical books about development theory, which makes it eminently useful as a textbook." Jan Nederveen Pieterse, Institute of Social Studies, The Hague
