Structural Analysis of Development and Underdevelopment

  • Joseph Halevi


This chapter will discuss Adolph Lowe’s (1955, 1976) contributions by positioning them in relation to the accumulation and crisis debate developed by Russian and German Marxism at the turn of the century (Section 2), to the question of the traverse in a mature economy (Section 3), and to the quasi-structural theories of development of Maurice Dobb and of the Indian school of planning (Section 4).
