Development Theory: Deconstructions, Reconstructions

Jan Nederveen Pieterse (Author)
Synopsis What are the connections between development and globalization? How do culture and modernity relate to the economic inequality between nations? In this exciting and panoramic book, one of the leading commentators on the theory and policy of development distils his thinking. The book ranges widely over issues of Eurocentrism, critical globalism, intercultural transaction, delinking and alternative, human and post-development theory. It also works through a series of ideas for reorienting and restructuring the field, providing readers with a range of options for the future of thinking about development. Throughout, the author tries to connect issues in development with the latest thinking in sociology, critical theory and social science generally. The aim is to restore development to its rightful place at the heart of contemporary social thought and to combat the tendency to treat it as a specialized subdiscipline. Development Theory is wide ranging in treatment and forward looking in its conclusions. As such, it will be used as a barometer of critical thought in the field today. The writing has come out of many years of teaching and research in developing countries. The book will be of interest to students of sociology, international studies, cultural studies, development studies and postcolonial studies.
