Bjorn Hettne
This book is a concise and accessible introduction to development thinking, contemporary development theory and practice and - a critical analysis of the values that lie behind them. Hettne argues that schools of development thinking should be historically contextualized, not presented as evolving towards a universal theory. The book will present development as an 'essentially contested concept', that has meant a number of things at various times to different people in different places. Focusing on historical discourses from the initial colonial encounters through to the modern day, Hettne draws the connections between the enlightenment belief in 'progress' through to the more recent focus on the Millennium Development Goals.

Bjorn HettneBJORN Hettne is an old India hand, who arouses a lot of interest among the young, especially on the campuses here and in Europe with his refreshing insights into conflicts.This economic historian has been involved with extensive India-specific research as founder-director of the Peace and Development Research Institute at the University of Gothenburg (PADRIGU), Sweden.He first visited India in1960 and went back smitten with its diversity.After his first thesis on The Political Economy of Indirect Rule and Mysore before 1947, Prof Hettne's studies on this region range from the Gandhian approach to development and the JP Movement to terrorism in Punjab and India-Pakistan tensions.
His strength lies not only in the way his philosophy impacts young minds across the world, but also in his understanding of neo-regionalism as the new way of managing globalisation.An author of 20 books, he was back in India to study The Conflicts in South Asia in a Comparative Perspective.He was in Chandigarh to collect material on the turmoil in Punjab during the 1980s, which, along with the Kashmir crisis, the North-East insurgency and the Sri Lankan conflict, forms part of his latest study.
In an interview with Aditi Tandon, Prof Hettne observes that the Punjab problem has not been resolved entirely.
