This text surveys the major post-war debates on the place of the Third World in the world economy. Beginning with the initial contributions to development economics by such pioneers as W. Arthur Lewis, Paul Prebisch and Hans Singer, the collection covers the neostructuralist, dependency and world systems approaches that emerged in the 1960s and 1970s, and the neoclassical revival that gained ground in the 1970s. The two volume set also contains contributors to debates about particular issues, including trade, foreign investment, debt, aid and international regimes. The articles date from 1943 to 1990.
