An important innovative study of the development processes in the Third World, written by the staff of the Institute of World Economy and International Relations. Refining pat Marxist explanations, it provides a complex analysis of recent socio-economic trends and offers a realistic prognostication. Considerable stress is put on the uniqueness of the Third World situation which makes it impossible to follow the road traversed by the developed countries. Nevertheless, the authors find that a separate, alternative Third World model is also impossible and that the developing countries will have to integrate their economies with global requirements and processes.
