About this product
- DescriptionThis book investigates what 19th century political ecomists, social evolutionists, anthropologists and new liberals, on whom modern development theorists draw heavily, and whom modern underdevelopment theorists attack mercilessly, had to say about the future of the n-Western World. Principally this book examines how these great minds of last century addressed the following questions: - Can n-Western nations develop further and repeat the changes that have occurred in Western nations since the 18th century? - Are the interactions between Western nations and n-Western nations obstacles or moving forces to the development of the latter? - Can the experience of Western nations serve as a guideline by means of which the n-Western nations can escape from stagnation? This book concludes that the 19th century social scientists' position laid closer to the underdevelopment theorists than to the development theorists.
