"The themes and styles are refreshingly diverse but all the contributors remind us that what many development scholars and policy-makers downgrade as 'context' - history, ways of making meaning, political disputes - are often central to explaining development practice - [This book]not only implies the need for a classificatory rethink, which has been widely recognized for decades, but also gives us the ethnographic material to see how fruitful a more concerted anthropology of development in Europe could be." * Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute "This is a book whose time is overdue - It is a welcome addition to a burgeoning field of anthropological studies in which development plays a part, a book that will be widely read and appreciated - [It is]sophisticated, relevant, sufficiently up to date and interesting in the way in which it framed the new forms that anthropological engagement with development might take." * Andrea Cornwall, University of SussexÜber den Autor:
