[New Book] Confronting Desire: Psychoanalysis and International Development

Congratulations to Ilan Kapoor (Environmental Studies) on his new book—Confronting Desire: Psychoanalysis and International Development (Cornell University Press, 2020). By applying psychoanalytic perspectives to key themes, concepts, and practices underlying the development enterprise, Confronting Desire offers a new way of analyzing the problems, challenges and potentialities of international development. Professor Kapoor makes a compelling case for examining development’s unconscious desires, and in the process inaugurates a new field of study: psychoanalytic development studies.
