Designed primarily as a text for undergraduates and graduate students, this book provides a framework of ideas accessible and useful to anyone interested in problems of development and underdevelopment in the Third World. The book covers the following major areas, among others: theories of development, colonial expansion and colonial economies, the development of industry and agriculture, and the influence of the world economy on Third World development. Survival and Change in the Third World 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. With development issues impinging more and more upon established disciplines such as history, politics, and sociology, it is expected that this book will provide the framework for further debate in the area of Third World studies.
