Professor Lewis makes a strong case for American leadership in recognizing the salient position which developing countries now play in the processes of interdependence. Chapters on Latin America, Africa and South Asia strike the familiar note that sound American policies have to take account of the interests and attitudes of governments in these areas. Other authors question the wisdom of trying to promote private enterprise by direct means and stress the importance of strengthening the World Bank.
