East-South Relations In The World Economy

East-South Relations In The World Economy

Edited by Marie Lavigne

Westview Press, 1988, 288 pp.

In this useful volume, a team of French scholars looks at a small but interesting segment of the world economy-the relations of the developing countries with the U.S.S.R. and its East European allies. The coverage is uneven but the leader of the group, Professor Lavigne of the Sorbonne, concludes that the socialist countries are mainly interested in importing from the South, but that they do not offer much in return to the developing nations. "East-South relations may already be past their era of greatest expansion."
