For a single volume this is a remarkably thoroughgoing consideration of the many alternative arrangements by which private businesses transfer technology to developing countries. Professor Marton of Fordham University examines a series of industrial sectors, along with the policies and experiences of India, Brazil, Korea and Mexico. She considers the limits on government regulation of multinational firms, the kinds of bargains that can most usefully be struck and the conditions that are most (and least) conducive to the long-run development of local technological capacities.
