About this book


This book examines the paradigm shift in rural development from an industrial to an holistic approach to technology development, from a technocratic to a participatory approach to management, and from resource control by big organisations to local resource management. It provides a broad-ranging assessment of agriculture and local-level institutional development and sets out a range of agendas for development practice, management and policy into the twenty-first century.
