Summary The philosophy of this book is a fundamental respect for the inner strengths, potential, creativeness, knowledge and resources of communities. It demands a profound rethinking of the traditional role of the development "expert". It is not a critique of existing approaches but offers new insights and thought-provoking ideas. Although it deals with established issues it is a text with innovative contributions, which provide the development manager and administrator with new tools for the trade.
