Description

This book is a collection of multi-disciplinary essays by eminent scholars, and represents a reassessment of the theoretical and methodological issues involved in the study of development and social change. The issues are illustrated by case studies analysed in their historical context. The editors argue that analysts of revolutionary movements and economic and political issues in the developing world must consider the interdependence of 'core' and 'peripheral' societies in a world system. The contributors then show how this perspective makes a difference in the analysis of particular national or regional issues.show more
