Is 'development' a solution for positive social change or a cynical western strategy for maintaining inequality? Do African NGOs represent a flourishing civil society or the strategic allocation of external resources by local elites? Moving beyond an increasingly polarized debate about the role of NGOs, this book reveals the practices and social relations through which ideas of development are concretely established. Rather than reducing these to a single, encompassing development 'logic', Yarrow argues for the need to understand the multiple and conflicting epistemologies through which development interventions practically proceed. Through ethnographic description, he brings to life the everyday realities of development professionals in Ghana. The result is a profound challenge to theories of development and public culture in Africa and beyond
