The Weak in the World of the Strong: The Developing Countries in the International System
The Weak in the World of the Strong: The Developing Countries in the International System
By Robert L. Rothstein
Columbia University Press, 1977, 378 pp.

In this major study of relations between industrial and developing societies, the author argues that parallel and complementary changes are required in rich and poor states, in internal and in international society, if the developing world is to be successfully integrated into the international system. The study also provides an extensive and penetrating examination of the emergence of a Third World bloc and of politics within it in UNCTAD and other international forums.
