Anthropology, Development and Post-Modern Challenge - 96 edition

Anthropology, Development and Post-Modern Challenge (ISBN10: 0745307477; ISBN13: 9780745307473)
ISBN13: 978-0745307473
ISBN10: 0745307477

Summary: 'A well-crafted, sensitive, reflective and constructive book. It is highly recommended.' Development Policy Review 'A comprehensive overview of the history of development and anthropology's relationship to it, including a discussion of applied anthropology - a branch often ignored by anthropologists working within academe.' Journal of Peace Research. The work of anthropology and development in many ways share the same setting, yet their relationship has always
been uneasy; their practitioners often separated by vast expanses of mutually incompatible premises, methods and objectives. This text bridges the gap, providing readers with the basics of development studies and what an involvement in development might mean for anthropologists. At its heart is an anthropological critique of conventional development practice which probes the relationship of the two subjects. The authors argue that a two way dialogue is possible between the disciplines and raise important questions about the interface between the global and the local, state and society, poverty and power. Through detailed case studies and the issues raised by them, Gardner and Lewis outline key social issues and problems of development, and conclude that anthropological perspectives can contribute positively to development policy and practice.
