A propos de cet article

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 de ce titre

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.
