As the aid strategies of international agencies become more complex, their methods of planning and administration become less effective. The rationalistic techniques adopted during the 1960s and 1970s to control development activities and the more recent structural adjustment models used to reform economic policies have failed to encourage the flexibility, experimentation and social learning that are crucial to the successful implementation of development activities. Now in its second edition,Development Projects as Policy Experimentsoffers the adaptive approach needed for successful aid programs. This edition continues to provide the practical testing and reformulation of ideas presented in the first edition, yet offers a range of new examples and extended coverage. The edition includes important material on participatory and strategic management, from individual development projects to economic reform policies. This is the latest volume in theDevelopment andUnderdevelopment Series, a highly acclaimed group of works which provides authoritative reviews of contemporary issues in international development policy and theory. Like the other volumes in this series, this important study of development policy and practice is radical in its approach, and will promote more fruitful ways of understanding the South and its relationship to the North.
