The book provides a structural critique of the World Bank's approach to development, but the main purpose is to lay the intellectual foundations for an alternative approach. The book takes a broad interdisciplinary approach, focusing on 8 individuals who have wrestled with the fundamental conundrum of giving external help that promotes self help- Albert Hirschnan, John Dewey, Paulo Freire, E.F. Schumacher, Douglas McGrego, Carl Rogers, Saul Alinsky, and Soren Kierkegaard. A companion volume to Stiglitz's Globalization and its Discontents. New Book
