Essential reading for all rural development students and practitioners in the 1990s, this book examines the paradigm shift in rural development from an industrial to a 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 21st century.
