15161. The Dominant Discourse of Development Anthropology.
In a 1991 article, Arturo Escobar argued that development anthropology is still dependent on a post-World War II discourse that supports an imperialistic Western-based world-view. This paper examines Escobar's views on this subject, as well as the views of some of his critics. 10 pages, 27 footnotes, 8 bibliographic references.
