Abstract

This chapter examines the institutional, discursive, andpolitical economic dimensions of the postwar regime of development. In additionto discussing the twentieth-century approaches to development, such asmodernization, dependency, basic needs, and human development, it offers anextended treatment of the ideological antecedents of "development" innatural law theories on property, classical political economy, late-industrialization,and the Mandate System. It is argued that the central axis connecting thedevelopment regime to its historical antecedents is a particular politics of universalismthat belongs to the history of capitalism and European colonial empires.
