Editorial Reviews


Praise for the first edition:
"This book is essential reading -because of the originality of its point of view, the timeliness of its analysis and the startling propositions which it puts forward... Bristling with new ideas, the author provides us with an intelligent way into understanding better the world's present disorders" -- Le Monde Diplomatique
"This is an original and thought-provoking book for the new Millennium, which rejects one of the most widely-held beliefs of the Twentieth Century that development is an inevitable process for Nation States...Highly readable, The Development Myth is a useful tool for understanding the enormous problems for survival that will have to be faced by the poverty-stricken, exploding urban populations of the wrongly called ?developing countries?" -- Javier Perez de Cuellar (United Nations Secretary-General 1982 - 1991)
"This provocative and well-written book may stimulate discussion and promote sound survival and development policies" -- Choice
