He examines how indigenous peoples resist mainstream development initiatives led by the state and NGOs- instead, they become united, form their own ethnic organizations and promote development by themselves.

Drawing upon ethnographic descriptions of three grassroots ethnic organizations, which work for indigenous peoples in promoting economic livelihood, education and strive for social justice, this book investigates the possibilities and challenges of alternative development. It offers a fresh anthropological insight of how an alternative development model is attainable - which is endowed with freedom, choice and empowerment - a matter that many scholars in the field of sociology and anthropology of development have long been looking for.
