520    "Culture, Development and Social Theory places culture 
       back at the centre of debates in development studies. It 
       introduces new ways of conceptualizing culture in relation
       to development by linking development studies to cultural 
       studies, studies of social movements, religion and the 
       notion of 'social suffering'. The author expertly argues 
       that in the current world crises it is necessary to 
       recover a more holistic vision of development that creates
       a vocabulary linking more technical (and predominantly 
       economic) aspects of development with more humanistic and 
       ecological goals. Any conception of post-capitalist 
       society, he argues, requires cultural, as well as economic
       and political, dimensions."--Publisher's website
