The book argues that 'modern' knowledge wins out in the conflict with 'traditional' knowledge not because of its superior cognitive power, but because of its prestige, associated both with the economic and political ascendancy of the West over the past 500 years and with the cultural history of the West itself.
Investigating the ways development strategies have affected traditional cultural values and social practices, this scholarly and imaginative collection of essays critically examines the role of Western technology in development. The contributors include S. Marglin, A. Appadurai, A. Nandy, S. Viswanathan, F. Apffel Marglin, and T. Banuri.
