Summary and Info
Beyond Developmentality traces the origin and evolution of the concept of development in the economic context, and suggests a way to achieve post-industrial development with zero industrial growth. The book argues that sustainable development is possible only when concerns for biodiversity and human development are put at the center of the economy and social policy. It provides both a theoretical foundation to sustainability and presents practical instances of sustainable production systems.Coverage includes history, ecology, economics, anthropology, policy analysis, population theory, sociology, Social Darwinism, the Marxian critique of capitalism, Orientalism and semiotics. These are interwoven in an accessible but challenging way that enables readers to look at development theory, economics, consumerism and environmentalism from a new vantage point. This is the most sweeping coverage of critical issues in economics, environment, development and sustainability available, and an empowering and necessary read for students, academics, professionals and activists.
