The Introduction talks about the growing evidence that the conventional development strategies were not working; "Policies were to be decided upon by university-trained technocrats and carried out by new rationally organized bureaucracies manned by Western-groomed elites" . The paper then discusses the roots of the current concept of community development to colonial practices, British as well as American and French, and traces the development and application of the concept through the 1950's and 1960s. A case study on Botswana illustrates. A concluding section clarifies the main principles underlying the organization of community development staff at district level, and cautions against the "misleading 'felt-need' concept in communication strategy".
