Abstract: "This paper raises some issues concerning the basic assumptions of Marxist-Leninist and American liberal democratic views on the process of 'development.' In particular it asks whether the assumption that development' can be administered is tenable. In approaching this question, the paper examines (l) the conception of development held by Marxist-Leninists and certain liberal democratic theorists, including those associated with the Comparative Administration Group; (2) the means proposed to achieve 'development' in each case; and then.(3) suggests' apparent contradictions in each of these formulations. The contradictions lead to the conclusion that in some important ways 'development administration' is antagonistic to development."
