  • Development Methods and Approachesby Deborah Eade

    Practical Action Publishing 2003; US$ 67.28

    Many aid agencies advocate approaches to development which are people-centred, participatory, empowering and gender-fair.

  • Development and Cultureby Deborah Eade

    Practical Action Publishing 2002; US$ 67.28

    Most development policies and interventions are based on an assumption that 'modernisation' in the Western sense is the ultimate goal of human societies.

This collection of papers,... more...

  • Development and Patronageby Melakou Tegegn

    Practical Action Publishing 1997; US$ 67.28

    Some argue that the concept of development is far from a liberating process for all.

Some argue that the very concept of development is essentially a vehicle in which... more...
