"The anthropologists and economists in this volume contend that culture is central to development, and that cultural processes are neither inherently good nor bad and never static. Rather, they are contested and evolving, and can be a source of profound social and economic transformation through their influence on aspirations and collections action : yet they can also be exploitative, exclusionary, and can lead to inequality." "This book will be of interest to anyone concerned with the relationship between culture and economics, and the design and implementation of development policy."--Jacket.
