South-East Asia Between Two Worlds
South-East Asia Between Two Worlds
By Tibor Mende
Turnstile Press, 1955, 338 pp

Mr. Mende, who has made a specialty of underdeveloped areas, here discusses the life and problems of Indonesia, Burma and Pakistan. Informative and containing some excellent first-hand reporting, the book concludes with the author's propositions and prescriptions. In the economic field he feels that the only alternatives open are planning by persuasion or planning by force; he hopes for the former.
