About this book

This text provides a comprehensive introduction to the latest debates in the sociology of development, linking theoretical and empirical issues of social change primarily though not exclusively through reference to the Third World. This book covers general conceptions of modernisation and underdevelopment and points to new attempts at their synthesis as well as exploring the policy implications of different development models.
