Dependency Theory and the Return of High Politics

Synopsis

"During the past two decades, theoretical discussions and policy directions within the Third World and the industrialized countries have been dominated by two schools, modernization and dependency. This volume will be helpful to advanced undergraduates in political science and economics who seek to expand their understanding of dependency theory. The selections in this volume--by eight university professors with substantial expertise in political economy--cover many aspects: the evolution, theoretical context and problems connected with dependency theory and its empirical validation; the US approach to international economic relations in general and some of the complexities of US policy towards Saudi Arabia and Central America; the recent trend, particularly in the US, away from cooperative international relations and toward the strategy of 'high politics.'... The chapters on dependency and related issues are extremely insightful and comprehensive.... Generous footnotes and an up-to-date bibliographic essay provide excellent guides for further reading and research." - Choice
