Resources, Producer Power and International Relations
The underlying theme of this book is that the most significant long term effects of trends in world resource use will be on the development prospects of the less developed countries and on the relationships between these countries and the developed industrialised nations of the world. This is at variance with much that has been written since the onset of the environmental debate in the late 1960s. Consideration of the future availability of important resources has been very largely limited to prospects for the major resource consumers, the industrialised countries, and little attention has been paid to the total world scene in general and the prospects for less developed countries in particular.
