Overview

In many parts of the world, neoliberalism has not replaced but interacted with national developmentalism in complex and diverse ways. With new constituencies of developmentalism emerging across the globe and with classic developmental political economies restructuring beyond national boundaries, the sociopolitical conditions, processes, and consequences of national development have turned out much more diverse and complex than previously acknowledged. Concurrently, the structural incongruity across various goals of national progress – such as democracy, social equity and integration, and economic development – has become a prevalent phenomenon across the globe. Using case studies that coverboth post-ISI, post-socialist, post-developmental statist, and post-liberal instances of neoliberal-era developmental politics during the ascendancy of neoliberalism on the one hand and East and South Asian, Latin American, African, European, and Australian experiences on the other, the contributors critically examine various national configurations of developmental politics in the neoliberal era.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This sober intellectual project is empirically packed and theoretically reflective in its insistence that '[e]ach system should be examined by reference to the structures, agencies, processes, power, and conflicts that are exercised in material provision'. Academics, students and practitioners of peacebuilding should find much of interest and relevance in its book. For me, its key contribution lies in how it debunks a number of central myths about neoliberalism." - Mandy Turbaner, Peacebuilding
