Summary Originally published in 1969, this work gathers together essays on Third World development by nine social scientists with diverse academic interests. These contributions are united by a relative uncertainty in relation to development, derived from the broader critical reappraisal of the area which was occurring at the time, together with a need to create fresh methodologies for the advancement of their respective fields. The text is edited with an introduction by political scientist Colin Leys. This is a consummately researched collection, ambitious in scope, that will be of value to anyone with an interest in political science and theories of development.-- Publisher description.
