From the cover: “The first systematic and comprehensive analysis of the Latin American school of development, Latin American Theories of Development and Underdevelopment is an invaluable guide to the major Third World contribution to development theory. The four major strands in the work of Latin American theorists are structuralism, internal colonialism, marginality, and dependency. Exploring all four in detail, and the interconnections between them, Cristobal Kay highlights the developed world’s over-reliance on, and partial knowledge of, dependency theory in its approach to development issues, and analyses the first major challenges to neoclassical and modernization theories from the Third World.
Educated in Chile, Cristobal Kay studied under and worked alongside many of the authors whose work he discusses. He is therefore particularly well qualified to present the ideas of Latin American social scientists, and his book will be essential reading for all students of development and Latin America.”
