"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+-+41925809259654ocn654184063file20050.53The aid effect giving and governing in international developmentConference proceedingsDemonstrates the fruitfulness of an ethnographic approach to aid, policy reform and global governance.

Rather than considering non-governmental development organizations and voluntary agencies separately, it explores the similarities, differences and growing connections between them in both northern and southern contexts. Authors in the field consider the differences in scale and priority that exist between different types of third sector organizations in different settings, as well as the common challenges of accountability, legitimacy, effectiveness and governance.

Since its hard-won independence from Pakistan in 1971, it has been ravaged by economic and environmental disasters. Only recently has the country begun to emerge as a fragile, but functioning, parliamentary democracy, relatively self-sufficient in food production and with an economy that has been consistently achieving growth. The story of Bangladesh, told through the pages of this concise and readable book, is a truly remarkable one. By delving into its past, and through an analysis of the economic, political and social changes that have taken place over the last twenty years, the book explains how Bangladesh is becoming of increasing interest to the international community as a portal into some of the key issues of our age: the way globalization affects the world's poorer countries, the long-term effects of the international development industry, the potential risks to people and environment from climate change and the political challenges facing modern Muslim-majority nations. In this way the book offers an important corrective to the view of Bangladesh as a failed state and also sheds light on the lives of a new generation of its citizens."--P.

Through its accessible and provocative chapters, Popular Representations of Development introduces the idea that while the issue of "development" -- defined broadly as problems of poverty and social deprivation, and the various agencies and processes seeking to address these -- is normally one that is discussed by social scientists and policy makers, it also has a wide "popular" dimension. Development is something that can be understood through studying literature, films, and other non-conventional forms of representation. It is also a public issue, one that has ironically been associated with musical movements such as Live Aid and increasingly features in newer media such as blogs and social networking. The book connects the effort to build a more holistic understanding of development issues with an exploration of the diverse public sphere in which popular engagement with development takes place. This book gives students of development studies, media studies and geography as well as students of humanities engaging with global development issues a variety of perspectives from different disciplines to open up this new field for discussion"--Provided by publisher922ocn689527213file20010.79Lewis, DavidFor now648ocn767502502file20110.63Lewis, DavidBangladesh Politics, Economy and Civil SocietyPeriodicalsThe remarkable story of Bangladesh, which is becoming of increasing interest to the international community+-+6228626705324577ocn318456143book20080.53Lewis, DavidUnderstanding the local power structure in rural Bangladesh566ocn035666468book19960.95Lewis, DavidTrading the silver seed : local knowledge and market moralities in aquacultural developmentStudy on social, economic and technical aspects of aquaculture in Bangladesh+-+1798488036324422ocn244059792book20080.94NGOs and social welfare : new research approachesContributed articles; chiefly with reference to South Asia+-+6557516863342ocn228611306book20070.53Reconceptualising NGOs and their roles in development : NGOs, Civil Society and the International Aid System+-+744225822334ocn822414140art19931.00Lewis, DavidIndigenising extension : farmers, fish-seed traders and poverty-focused aquaculture in Bangladesh32ocn858749429book20140.47Lewis, DavidNon-governmental organizations, management and development22ocn034469435art19961.00Lewis, David'Appropriating' technology? : tractor owners, brokers, artisans and farmers in rural Bangladesh22ocn717378049art2003Lewis, David"Old" and "new" civil societies ? : reflections on NGOs, State and democracy in Bangladesh+-+4192580925+-+4192580925Fri Mar 21 15:34:54 EDT 2014batch17602
