Survival and Change in the Third World
This book, designed primarily as a text for undergraduate and graduate students, provides a framework of ideas in which to debate problems of development and underdevelopment in the Third World. Based on the Open University "Third World Studies" course, the chapters cover the following major areas among others: theories of development; colonial expansion and colonial economies; the development of industry and agriculture; the influence of the world economy on Third World development. The book focuses not only on industrial and agricultural production in Third World countries, but also on the people who are involved in making the economies function.
