Description

This multidisciplinary anthology presents a reassessment of the theoretical and methodological issues crucial to the study of development and social change, illustrated with case studies analyzed in their historical contexts. Arguing that analysts of revolutionary movements and economic and political issues in the developing world must consider the interdependent relationship between core and peripheral societies in our world system, the eminent contributors show how this perspective aids in the evaluation of particular national and regional issues. Unusually broad-based, this book includes major essays by George Beckford, Bradford Burns, and James Petras and introduces the work of several important younger scholars. It will be of great interest to scholars of development, especially those focusing on the Caribbean, Latin America, or Africa.show more
