"Ideal for newcomers to both fields, this text bridges the gap, providing readers with an introduction to development studies and was an involvement in the development might mean for anthropologists. At its heart is an anthropological critique of conventional development practice which probes the relationship of the two subjects. Through detailed case studies and the issues raised by them, Gardner and Lewis outline the social issues and problems of both rural and urban development. Their conclusions are that rough anthropological techniques and perspectives, many of the problems of western aid can be avoided."--Jacket.
