Community Development and Rural Organization: A Learning Process Approach

This study com­bines both extensive and intensive analysis of develop­ment assistance programs in Asia, focusing on five case studies which provide the basis for the author's strong conviction that Third World development assistance programs must be part of a holistically-perceived learning process, as opposed to a bureaucratically-mandated blue­print. The real value of Kor­ten's efforts, however, may be found in his case studies which provide rich insights into just what can be accom­plished in the way of social development if the development process itself can be viewed as a learning experience for all participants involved.
