There is a revolution happening in the practice of anthropology. A new field of 'indigenous knowledge' is emerging, which aims to make local voices hear and ensure that development initiatives meet the needs of indigenous people.

Development and Local Knowledge focuses on two major challenges that arise in the discussion of indigenous knowledge - its proper definition and the methodologies appropriate to the exploitation of local knowledge. These concerns are addressed in a range of ethnographic contexts.
Alan Bicker, Paul Stillitoe and Johan Pottier are the editors of Participating in Development. Alan Bicker lectures in anthropology at the University of Kent in Cantabury. Paul Stillitoe is Head of Anthropology at the University of Durham and Johan Pottier is Head of Anthropology at SOAS in London. All three have wrotten widely on issues surrounding development and forms of indiginous knowledge
