The economic setbacks of the 1970s and 1980s and the shift in many Third World countries away from state-run and protectionist policies affected the income, interests and strength of different social groups in a variety of ways. These studies prepared for a conference at the University of the West Indies try to work out the consequences of such changes for a number of countries in Latin America, the Caribbean and sub-Sahara Africa, and break a good bit of new ground.
