[SR: 9023961], Hardcover, [EAN: 9781856495875], Zed Books, Zed Books, Book, [PU: Zed Books], Zed Books, This is a powerful feminist critique of the 'Western' concept of development. It is also an attempt to rediscover and rehabilitate traditional indigenous knowledge as an important basis for empowering women and re-establishing the foundation of reciprocity in North-South dialogue. The author looks at the wreckage "progress" has wreaked on the lives of Thai sex workers and of indigenous peoples globally and contrasts this with a portrait - in words and pictures - of her own "undeveloped" mother, 'gardener, agriculturalist, cook, entertainer, tool and toy inventor and maker, traditional doctor, resources manager, energy conservationist, food scientist, home economist, sustainable developer, ecologist and environmentalist'. In exploring the possibilities for an appropriate development path, Sinith Sittirak applies the framework of a political economy of development which acknowledges the politics of identity and difference. Central to her framework is the recognition that 'development' is part of that universalizing process which imposes sameness by speaking for or naming the 'Other' and by excluding difference., 2585, Development & Growth, 2581, Economics, 3, Business & Money, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11298, Specific Demographics, 11300, African-American Studies, 3048871, Asian American Studies, 11306, Disabled, 11302, Ethnic Studies, 16244291, Gay & Lesbian, 3048881, Hispanic American Studies, 11310, Minority Studies, 11312, Native American Studies, 11232, Social Sciences, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11332, Feminist Theory, 11325, Women's Studies, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Details of the book
The Daughters of Development: Women in a Changing Environment

This is a powerful feminist critique of the 'Western' concept of development. It is also an attempt to rediscover and rehabilitate traditional indigenous knowledge as an important basis for empowering women and re-establishing the foundation of reciprocity in North-South dialogue.

The author looks at the wreckage "progress" has wreaked on the lives of Thai sex workers and of indigenous peoples globally and contrasts this with a portrait - in words and pictures - of her own "undeveloped" mother, 'gardener, agriculturalist, cook, entertainer, tool and toy inventor and maker, traditional doctor, resources manager, energy conservationist, food scientist, home economist, sustainable developer, ecologist and environmentalist'.

In exploring the possibilities for an appropriate development path, Sinith Sittirak applies the framework of a political economy of development which acknowledges the politics of identity and difference. Central to her framework is the recognition that 'development' is part of that universalizing process which imposes sameness by speaking for or naming the 'Other' and by excluding difference.
