Item description for The Development of Religion/The Religion of Development by Ananta Kumar Giri, Anton van Harskamp & Oscar Salemink...
Development is a key concept for thinking about the global relations between nations, but what exactly does it entail and how do its practices emerge? The Development of Religion/The Religion of Development investigates the religious and political factors that inspire the creation and implementation of development programs.
Eminent scholars from around the world consider whether development programs are in part driven by a secular, quasi-religious view on how nations and peoples should evolve, and they critically analyze the methods used in development practices. Drawing on a wide range of disciplines, this volume offers a fascinating study on how development agencies balance religion and spirituality with their missions.
