Abstract:

Gustav Papanek, one of the early workers in Pakistans reputedly hopeless vineyard, has watched and participated in the countrys growth for more than a decade. As Director of Harvards Development Advisory Service, he uses this book to simultaneously describe Pakistans experience, to use the lessons of this experience to question many concepts in the development literature and to find in Pakistans case ample evidence to destroy some of the shibboleths about traditional societies and traditional man. As Edward Mason cautions in the foreword, the arguments are made with considerable vigor as is appropriate to an author who has had something to do with the successes he describes. Author
