    DescriptionThis reader brings together thinking on development by scholars, practitioners and activists from both North and South. They provide a critique of what the mainstream paradigm has in practice done to the peoples of the world and to their richly diverse and sustainable ways of living. They also present some of the ideas out of which the victims of development are now constructing new, humane, culturally and ecologically respectful modes of development.
