Summary
"Anthropology for Development: From Theory to Practice connects cross-cultural social theory with the concerns of development policy and practice by introducing the reader to a set of core ideas from the field of anthropology for development, and showing how these insights can be applied to solve real-world development dilemmas. This single, accessibly written volume clearly explains key concepts from the anthropology and draws them into a development framework to address some of the important challenges facing development policy and practice in the twenty-first century: poverty, participation, sustainability and innovation. It discusses classic critical and ethnographic texts and more recent anthropological work, using rich case studies across a range of country contexts to provide an introduction to the field not available elsewhere. The examples presented are designed to help development professionals reframe their practice with attention to social and cultural variables as well as understand why mainstream approaches to reducing poverty, raising productivity, delivering social services and grappling with environmental risks often fail. This book will prove invaluable to the undergraduate and postgraduate students who are professionals-in-training in development studies programs around the world. It will also help development professionals work effectively and inclusively across cultures, tap into previously invisible resources, and turn current development challenges into opportunities."--Provided by publisher
