Beyond the Impasse by Frans J. Schuurman

Book Description

Development theory in the past decade has met with increasingly heavy criticism. Dependency theories, as well as modes of production and world-system approaches, have come to be considered as internally inconsistent and inadequate for explaining the increasing diversity and unevenness of the Third World. This book confronts the theoretical impasse which many feel has been reached. Development scholars from various disciplines review recent changes in research priorities, procedures and orientations, and detect the emergence of new and diverse lines of theoretical development in the field. In particular, they deal with the important meta-theoretical, political, cultural and ethical questions that have come to the fore.

Globalization and Development Studies by Frans J. Schuurman Globalization and Development Studies, Paperback (November 2001)

'As a whole, the book is a useful compilation of rigorous academics papers. The contributions by the editor have woven these into an organic whole, rather than being a conglomerate of uncorrelated works on a common theme' - K B S Sidhu, The Tribune
