Its usefulness as a guide to the new thinking about development taking place in the Third World is further enhanced by the extensive and thematically organized bibliography.

He examines the role of multinational corporations, the export of capital, and class and economic distortions.

    Bread and Underdevelopment in Nigeria

    This book examines how bread, introduced as a luxury in colonial Nigeria, has become the cheapest staple food, and how Nigeria is now caught in a "wheat trap": the need to import increasing quantities of the grain, but - with failing oil revenues - a declining ability to finance them.

  34. World Debt: Who is to Pay?
    Resource Type: Book
    Published: 1987
    The solution of the debt crisis cannot lie in reducing interest rates or juggling exchange rates.

This book explores the responsibility of the creditors for this situation, as well as that of the debtors.

    Dynamics of Decline

    Resource Type: Book

His analysis raises questions about the future of traditional manufacturing sectors, and explores the prospects for Third World countries of developing their own industries.
