Culture, Development and Social Theory: Towards an Integrated Social Development
Culture, Development and Social Theory places culture back at the center of debates in development studies, introducing new ways of conceptualizing culture in relation to development by linking development studies to cultural studies, studies of social movements, religion and the notion of "social suffering." The author expertly argues that in the current world crisis it is necessary to recover a more holistic vision of development that creates a vocabulary linking more technical (and predominantly economic) aspects of development with more humanistic and ecological goals. Furthermore, that any conceptions of post-capitalist economies and societies require cultural as well as economic and political dimensions.
