In this book some of the leading thinkers in Development Studies trace the history of their multi-disciplinary subject from the late colonial period all the way through to its contemporary concerns with poverty reduction. They present a critical genealogy of development, looking at the contested evolution and roles of development institutions and exploring changes in development discourses. These personal and institutional recollections, by those who teach, research and practise development, challenge simplistic, unilinear periodizations of the evolution of the discipline, and draw attention to ongoing critiques, such as Marxism, feminism and postcolonialism, which so often have been marginalized or written out of mainstream development discourse. Key themes include gender and development, NGOs, and natural resource management. The book is radical in that it challenges orthodoxies of development theory and practice and highlights concealed, critical discourses that have been written out of conventional stories of development.
