Rapley provides both an assesment of the current state of development theory and an extensive survey of the impact of policies and practices throughout the developing world. He traces the evolution of development theory from its strong statist orientation in the early postwar period, through the neoclassical phase, to the present emerging consensus on people-centered development.
