"This book is probably the most important contribution to the field of alternative development in the last ten years or so." Ignacy Sachs, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris "As an introduction into a Alternativea development discourse, Friedmana s work is definitely a valuable and timely addition." Community Development Journal "Friedmanna s treatment of the subject of development here is highly innovative and should prove of interest to a broad range of planners, geographers, and others concerned with advancing an interdisciplinary perspective of development." Antipode "Interesting for any practitioner concerned with problems in the developing world, problems of local economy, and planning issues in the community." Journal Systems Practice "A worthy attempt to provide an alternative model to mainstream approaches to development. It is written in an accessible style, well punctuated with apt and interesting practical examples of alternative organisation." Capital and Class "Friedmanna s work is a significant addition to the literature. It should be invaluable as a textbook for courses on development across disciplines." Development and Change
