Overview

What does it mean to speak of 'national development' in the 1990s? As a result of the tumultuous changes in global economic and political structures, scholars and policymakers specializing in the study of national development must reassess the interpretive models they have relied upon in the past. This book brings together essays by a distinguished group of social scientists that address the dilemmas facing development theory today. These essays, grounded in sociological research, reclaim the important role once played by sociological theory in development studies. The collection provides an overview of traditional theories of development, assessing their strengths and weaknesses, and identifies the new actors, issues, and processes that future analysis must address. The essays discuss the impact of technological innovations in production and commerce, the changing relations of states and markets, regional development inequalities, and the emergence of new social groups as participants in development processes. from the book Contents: 'Sociology and Development in the 1990s: Critical Challenges and Empirical Trends,' by A.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The contributions in Comparative National Development weave together theoretical arguments, historical considerations, and empirical material into a coherent, sophisticated volume."—Contemporary Sociology

"Portes and Kincaid have taken us beyond the exhausted paradigms of dependency and world-system analysis and shown us through these essays that the field of development studies has many new horizons. The volume is a must read for any serious social scientist who wants to be informed of the latest advances in the field."—Mitchell A. Seligson, University of Pittsburgh
