Editorial Reviews

Review

'This superb book builds on the illuminating contrast between the "life projects" of indigenous people and the "development projects" funded by global capital. "Life projects" are about the right of any people to define the meaning of their life and their place in the cosmos. The book is filled with ambiguous but sometimes hopeful examples of indigenous peoples working with NGOs, governments, and corporations to defend their autonomy, and in the process shaping human rights and development agendas nationally and globally' John H. Bodley, Washington State University 'A comprehensive account of relations between agents of globalization - corporations and states - and indigenous peoples worldwide.' Michael Asch, University of Victoria 'The book's critique of Western development assumptions, its emphasis on subordinated people's own agency and its insistence on holistic, context-driven understandings are all highly relevant to the human endeavour of acquring knowledge in general and improving teaching and learning, especially among those not succeeding in today's hegemonic culture and market.' Richard H. Daly, Studies in Continuing Education
