Norman Uphoff draws far reaching conclusions from the Gal Oya project for participatory development and contemporary social science. He documents and analyses the remarkable progress made by farmers, community organizers, officials, researchers and finally policy makers, iteratively forging progressive changes in the midst of ethnic and political strife.
