    In a world of swift and sweeping cultural transformations, few have seen changes as rapid and dramatic as those experienced by the Urapmin of Papua New Guinea in the last four decades.

  • An Anthropological Critique of Developmentby Mark Hobart

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 55.95

    Questioning the utopian image of western knowledge as a uniquely successful achievement in its application to economic and social development, this provocative volume, the latest in the EIDOS series, argues that it is unacceptable to dismiss problems encountered by development projects as the inadequate implementation of knowledge.

    Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 39.99
