Reviews

"Short, pithy and well reasoned... There is something in each chapter to challenge, even assault, our dearest, most tightly held assumptions." --Praise for the First Edition, Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society

"The Development Dictionary questions the whole basis for twentieth century development through a series of brilliantly written essays by leading writers from around the world." --Praise for the First Edition, Resurgence

"Unique...the book is a scream of pain from the receiving end of a process experienced as cultural genocide." --Praise for the First Edition, The Guardian
