Synthesis of Traditional and Modern in the Evolution of Third World Societies

Synopsis

In Soviet literature this theoretical study of the evolution of Third World countries represents the first efforts to deviate from dogmatic Stalinist methodology in analyzing Eastern and Western societies. A senior Soviet scholar compares two Western models of capitalist development and describes a third model in the developing countries when analyzing the processes of socioeconomic and state-political development of countries in Asia and North Africa. His case studies of the third model--of India and Malaysia; of Indonesia, Pakistan, and Egypt; and of Saudi Arabia and Iran under the Shah--and his new theories are bound to provoke controversy among scholars.
