Editorial Reviews

An economist and a historian trace the idea and practice of development from its early-19th-century origin to the present, with extended case histories from Australia, Canada, and Kenya that show its close link with early capitalism. They show how it differs from the idea of progress and so has not been subject to the reaction against progress; present shorter case studies from India, Latin American, and Austria; and argue that even in its recent perverse forms of alternative development it relies on the concept of trusteeship, the intent of one to act on behalf of another. Includes 35 pages of bibliography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
