A review of basic trends in industry, agriculture, foreign trade and finance in 14 Afro-Asian countries. Extensive factual data based on U.N., Western and national sources is given, but it is monotonously interpreted according to the Soviet formula--dealings with the West hold up economic development, while aid and trade with the U.S.S.R. result in progress.
