Social Development in Africa Today Some Radical Proposals
1991 0-7734-9637-8
Working for the Commonwealth Secretariat, advising Government Ministries of Social Development and Youth Development on policy and programme strategies to deal with youth unemployment, and training field staff from 1980-1985, Stephen Chan grew disillusioned with the planning orthodoxies of government ministries and international agencies alike. These essays, collected here for the first time, present a spirited rejection of development orthodoxies, while providing thoughtful contributions to the development debate. The text is in two basic parts, one to do with youth and social development, the other with the more general question of development aid which forms a context for any social development.
