Social organization and development anthropology : the 1995 Malinowski award lecture by Michael M Cernea( Book )

20 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The way we legitimize to others or to ourselves the need for social analysis in development interventions creates a structure of expectations that becomes compelling. In other words, if we argue just the pragmatic, short-term operational benefits ' side of using anthropology, we will end up playing a very mundane fix-it-here-and-fix-it-there role. If, however, we convincingly construct the argument for a theoretical applied anthropology, we lay claim to having voice over the substance of development paradigms and policies. The rigid dichotomy between applied and theoretical anthropology is a simplistic representation that must be rejected. The practice of anthropology can generate value-added for society only if it is practiced as theoretical applied anthropology. What has to be applied through applied anthropology is our theoretically generalized knowledge about societies and cultures. What else would anthropologists have to apply? They use the research methods. What they apply is the storehouse of knowledge

"Examines how a capacity for mobilizing community participation can be built into a project's design and staffing.

Researching the culture in agri-culture : social research for international agricultural development by A. H Kassam( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyses the functions, content, methods, findings and impact of social and cultural research carried out by the worldwide network of 16 international agricultural research centres of the CGIAR. It brings together the perspectives of 50 eminent scholars and social researchers from 30 countries working within the centres or in outside academic and development institutions. The contributions examine critically the priorities, strengths, and weaknesses of research on the sociostructural, behavioural, cultural and institutional variables of developing agriculture, forestry, livestock and fisheries. The studies focus on farmers' values, needs, knowledge, their patterns of social organization, issues of food security, natural resource management and poverty reduction. Alternative models of multidisciplinary research, reuniting biological, natural, economic and social sciences, are scrutinized in the light of experience and results, with emphasis on the nature of social science research as a source of international public goods and a key contributor to induced development. The book is intended for researchers of agricultural and rural development, economics, sociology, culture and anthropology. It has 22 chapters in addition to an editors' preface, and has a subject index
