BeschreibungThe first concerted critical examination of the uses and abuses of indigenous knowledge.
The contributors focus on a series of interrelated issues in their interrogation of indigenous knowledge and its specific applications within the localised contexts of particular Asian societies and regional cultures. In particular they explore:
The problems of translation and mistranslation in the local-global transference of traditional practices and representations of resource management. The match and mismatch of practical reasoning in indigenous subsistence regimes and their depictions by outsiders. The developmental and political consequences of contemporary ethnic and regional claims rooted in an ideology of "Traditional" indigenous knowledge.
Pressestimmen"Excellent, thoughtful, challenging papers....Overall, the book documents many cases of misuse and abuse of 'IK' and explains with insight problems with the concept....Recommended for professionals and development workers."
