Description: In The History of Development, Gilbert Rist provides a complete and powerful overview of what the idea ofdevelopment has meant throughout history. He traces it from its origins in the Western view of history, throughthe early stages of the world system, the rise of US hegemony, the supposed triumph of the third world, through to new concerns about the environment and globalization. In two new chapters on the MillenniumDevelopment Goals and post-development thinking, Rist brings the book completely up to date. Throughout,he argues persuasively that development has been no more than a collective delusion, which in reality has only resulted in widening market relations, despite the good intentions of its advocates.Lucidly and powerfully written, this new edition is more essential than ever for students and practitioners of development.
