520    Social assessment for projects in China is an important 
       emerging field. This collection of essays - from authors 
       whose formative work has influenced the policies that 
       shape practice in development-affected communities - 
       locates recent Chinese experience of the development of 
       social assessment practices (including in displacement and
       resettlement) in a historical and comparative perspective.
       Contributors - social scientists employed by international
       development banks, national government agencies, and sub-
       contracting groups - examine projects from a 
       practitioner's perspective. Real-life experiences are 
       presented as case-specific praxis, theoretically informed 
       insight, and pragmatic lessons-learned, grounded in the 
       history of this field of development practice. They 
       reflect on work where economic determinism reigns supreme,
       yet project failure or success often hinges upon 
       sociopolitical and cultural factors
