Product Description

Review

'This is a book that should be read and practised by everyone involved in international development today.' Michael Edwards, director, Governance and Civil Society, The Ford Foundation 'To fully appreciate what permanent curiosity means, read this book. The creativity in participatory methods it can give rise to is laid out with deep, personal insight. This historical landscape offers perpetual horizons for those committed to innovative development practices that truly empower.' Alan Fowler, development analysis and writer, honorary professor, Centre for Civil Society, University of KwaZulu Natal 'A must-read for all development practitioners and theorists. It reminds us once again, as Robert Chambers has done for three decades, that development is about people, why it defies simple technocratic 'solutions', and that we need to approach this challenge with humility.' Sakiko Fukuda-Parr, professor of international affairs, The New School 'For over 20 years, Robert Chambers has been leading a quiet revolution in development practice, and this wonderful book brings together all his wisdom in one place for the very first time. This is a book that should be read and practised by everyone involved in international development today.' Michael Edwards, director, Governance and Civil Society, The Ford Foundation 'Written in informal style, it is also quite a personal account of experiencing these developments, focusing on the family of approaches including agroecosystem analysis. It is useful to have much of this material in one place, and will be an important reference for all categories of development practitioners.' LEISA (Low External Input and Sustainable Agriculture) Magazine 'Anyone who really wants to work at the grassroots will find it fascinating' John Connell, Geographical Education, 2009. 'Chambers has produced a very readable, engaging work that illuminates and praises the march of new ideas in what he calls 'development inquiry', without succumbing to hagiographic account of inevitable, and ever-better, improvements.' Edward R. Carr, Progress in Development Studies.

Provocative and thoughtful. This book invites you to discover the intricacies of development. With a style powerfully motivating, we stop to question our paradigms and visions of it, and recognize the great opportunity we have to build a better world.
