"[I]mportant. . . . [A]n original and provocative analysis."--Population and Development Review

Descripción del producto

How did the industrialized nations of North America and Europe come to be seen as the appropriate models for post-World War II societies in Asia, Africa, and Latin America? How did the postwar discourse on development actually create the so-called Third World? And what will happen when development ideology collapses? To answer these questions, Arturo Escobar shows how development policies became mechanisms of control that were just as pervasive and effective as their colonial counterparts. The development apparatus generated categories powerful enough to shape the thinking even of its occasional critics while poverty and hunger became widespread. "Development" was not even partially "deconstructed" until the 1980s, when new tools for analyzing the representation of social reality were applied to specific "Third World" cases. Here Escobar deploys these new techniques in a provocative analysis of development discourse and practice in general, concluding with a discussion of alternative visions for a postdevelopment era.

Escobar emphasizes the role of economists in development discourse--his case study of Colombia demonstrates that the economization of food resulted in ambitious plans, and more hunger. To depict the production of knowledge and power in other development fields, the author shows how peasants, women, and nature became objects of knowledge and targets of power under the "gaze of experts."

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Reunderstanding development 15 de mayo de 2000
Por Un cliente - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
Arturo Escobar critics the whole concept of development in theory and practice from an extremely unusual and original perspective. He steps back and views development as something exotic and almost non-sense. Inspired on the work of Foucault, the author examines the evolution of the discourse about development as a form of how the West keeps exerting power and influence on the Third World. The ethnocentric views of development and interventions that come with them - propagated by Western governments, multinational companies, development institutions and academia - puts Third World cultures and traditional populations as something that should be significantly changed to achieve the so-dreamed "development." Although the results of these western-driven interventions over decades have usually been catastrophic for Third World's populations and cultures, Western "experts" keep coming to the Third World and elaborating new forms of discourses on development, now addressing objects like sustainable development, women and development and poverty erradication - all ethnocentric and based on western values. This book should be read by anyone who wants to reunderstand development in the Third World (and reflect if it is needed at all!).

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Great book to Understand What a Eurocentric "Development" Truly is 27 de enero de 2014

great book, the author is makes extremely elaborate yet easy to understand points.
Anyone looking to be involved in the world of development in any way should read this book. You do not have to agree with the author, but at least be aware of the pitfalls of development that he maps out. and at the very least answer to them.

Por Garrett J. Menning - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle
Encountering Development represents what has become an unfortunate growth industry in the 1980s abd 1990s: postmdodern critiques of the development industry. Escobar presents some stimulating criticisms of the whole development paradigm along with an assortment of critiques so abstract and jargon-ridden that it is difficult to understand what he and his compratriots actually mean. It is hard to argue that development efforts to date have measured up to what has been promised. But what is lacking in this book--as in most other works of this kind--are realistic, coherent and practical suggestions for alternatives.

2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Anger does not equal analysis 8 de junio de 2004
Por Un cliente - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
This is a tract, not a thoughtful piece of scholarship. It is in the Latin American school of angry social science, but is little informed by fact. Much of what it says is correct, but is also well known. But the analysis is weak, based on incorrect or outdated data, and simply a regurgitation of stereotypes instead of a deductive grounded analysis based upon good ethnographic work. It is therefore often simply wrong. But anger sells books.....

It gives us the possibility of singling out "development" as an encompassing cultural space and at the same time of separating ourselves from it by perceiving it in a totally new form. &quote;

development as a historically singular experience, the creation of a domain of thought and action, by analyzing the characteristics and interrelations of the three axes that define it: the forms of knowledge that refer to it and through which it comes into being and is elaborated into objects, concepts, theories, and the like; the system of power that regulates its practice; and the forms of subjectivity fostered by this discourse, those through which people come to recognize themselves as developed or underdeveloped. &quote;
