Description

The International Political Economy and the Developing Countries surveys the major post-war debates on the place of the Third World in the world economy. Beginning with the initial contributions to development economics by such pioneers as W. Arthur Lewis, Paul Prebisch and Hans Singer, the collection surveys the neostructuralist, dependency and world systems approaches that emerged in the 1960s and 1970s, and the neoclassical revival that gained ground in the 1970s.show more

Review quote

'A valuable reference collection of major works in this area ...' -- Aslib Book Guide 'These two volumes are clearly very welcome additions to the literature. It gives the reader an excellent feel for the process of evolution of the literature which has witnessed major ups and downs in the fortunes of different schools of thought in the post war period. To summarise, these two books should be essential additions in every library which caters for the political economy of developing countries.' -- S. Lahiri, The Economic Journalshow more
