Summary The studies in this book cover a wide range of major issues in development economics. In the first part general problems of concept, method, analysis, historical experience, and policy are examined. The topics include a systematic analysis of the notions of the vicious circle of poverty and the widening gap; fundamental examination of comprehensive planning and foreign aid as instruments for the development of poor countries; a discussion of Marxist-Leninist prescriptions on development policy; a critique of the ideas of UNCTAD; and an assessment of the role of economics inthe study of underdeveloped countries and in the provision of technical assistance. The second part consists of case studies in which development experience and official government policies in various parts of the underdeveloped world are surveyed in detail; and the third part of reviews and assessments of major writers on development economics and policy.
