Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Development studies is in a state of flux. A new generation of scholars has come to reject what was once regarded as accepted wisdom, and increasingly regard development and globalization as part of a continuum with colonialism, premised on the same reductionist assumption that progress and growth are objective facts that can be fostered, measured, assessed and controlled. Drawing on a variety of theoretical perspectives and approaches, this book explores the ways in which social movements in the Global South are rejecting Western-centric notions of development and modernization, as well as creating their own alternatives. By assessing development theories from the perspective of subaltern groups and movements, the contributors posit a new notion of development from below , one in which these movements provide new ways of imagining social transformation, and a way out of the developmental dead end that has so far characterized post-development approaches. Beyond Colonialism, Development and Globalization therefore represents a radical break with the prevailing narrative of modernization, and points to a bold new direction for development studies.

A propos du livre :

Synopsis : Development studies are currently in a state of flux. Long-accepted wisdom is being dismissed by new generations of scholars who increasingly set development and globalization on the same continuum as colonialism, premised as they are on a shared reductionist assumption that progress and growth are objective facts to be measured, assessed, and controlled.

This book gathers contributions from a number of prominent scholars who are on the cutting edge of this transformation in development studies, and the result is a clear picture of where the field is today, and where it likely will be headed next. Positing a new “development from below,” one that foregrounds the perspective of previously marginalized groups and movements, the book enables us to reimagine development studies in a new, more productive, more radical way.

About the Author: D. Kapoor is professor of international education in the Department of Educational Policy Studies at the University of Alberta. D. Caouette is associate professor in the Department of Political Science and directory of the East Asian Studies Centre at the University of Montreal.
