Summary
"The idea for this book arose from a perceived need to reconsider the major issues in law and development in the context of the remarkable changes that have taken place in the international order in recent years. The thread linking the contributions in this timely volume is the critique of liberal law and development theory and its impact on the relevance to the lives of people in the developing world. The authors, all of whom have strong ties to the Law in Development programme pioneered at the University of Warwick, reflect the continuing vitality of critical law and development scholarship in the 'new world order'." "A second but no less important goal of Law and Crisis in the Third World is to stimulate debate about law and development, and co-operation between progressive scholars in the North and the South."--Jacket
