Development and Local Knowledge, Hardback Book

Development and Local Knowledge Hardback

Edited by Alan Bicker, Paul Sillitoe, Johan Pottier

Part of the Studies in Environmental Anthropology series



There is a revolution happening in the practice of anthropology.

A new field of 'indigenous knowledge' is emerging, which aims to make local voices hear and ensure that development initiatives meet the needs of indigenous people. Development and Local Knowledge focuses on two major challenges that arise in the discussion of indigenous knowledge - its proper definition and the methodologies appropriate to the exploitation of local knowledge.

These concerns are addressed in a range of ethnographic contexts.
