About this product
- DescriptionThe volume of relevant research and literature on this topic is growing but originates mainly from ecomists, sociologists, and political scientists; geographers have been slow to make contributions. One reason may be that geographers have been preoccupied with differentiation within the geography of production whereas this new field directs attention to the geography of consumption and a study of ecomies. This book aims to focus attention on the complex and inter-related problems--social, ecomic, political, and geographical--that come with development, placing particular emphasis on the problems which accompany attempts at industrialization. Focusing on the complex and interrelated social, ecomic, political, and geographic problems that attend under-development, this book presents one of the first contributions from a geographer on what has been called the most important ecomic problem of the modern world. Contending that industrialization is answer for under-developed countries that are striving to maintain expanding populations and to strengthen their ecomy, Alan B. Mountjoy traces the distribution, causes, and problems of under-development and the difficulties with and possibilities for industrialization as an aid in solving those problems. He defines development and under-development, considers problems of industrialization (including environmental and human problems), discusses the forms industrialization takes, and analyzes the progress of industrialization in specific under-developed areas. The unique geographer's perspective and the ability of the author to select aspects of the study that most clearly reflect the problems of under-developed ecomies make this work a useful text and reference book for students and scholars of development, ecomic geography, and international relations.
- Author BiographyAlan B. Mountjoy was lecturer in geography at Bedford College, University of London, where he specialized in economic geography and the study of underdeveloped countries. Some of his other books include Industrialization and Developing Countries, Africa (with David Hilling), and Developing the Underdeveloped Countries.
