'This anthology is a must read for all development practitioners frustrated by strategies that are grossly out of touch with the realities of the masses; it is for those that wish to "be real" and relevant to those they are supposed to work for. Its wide range and depth of analysis is guaranteed to jumpstart a stimulating debate even among the most conservative development thinkers.' Sylvia Tamale, Makerere University, Uganda
