Pluriverse: A Post-Development Dictionary contains over 100 essays on transformative initiatives and alternatives to the currently dominant processes of globalized development, including its structural roots in modernity, capitalism, state domination, and masculinist values. The book presents worldviews and practices from around the world in a collective search for an ecologically wise and socially just world. It offers critical essays on mainstream solutions that ‘greenwash’ development, and presents radically different worldviews and practices from around the world that point to an ecologically wise and socially just world. Contributors to the volume, more than 120 in number, include activists, academics and practitioners with a wealth of experience in their respective fields of engagement.
