This survey of Third World development focuses specifically on the Ivory Coast, Malaysia, Costa Rica, Colombia, Venezuela, India, China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. No criteria are given for the selection of these locales. While seeming commonalities in the development among several of these places emerge, one can not help but question if other intervening cultural variables are responsible. Libraries interested in having a sweeping perspective on development might consider this title. Academic collections may prefer volumes on the individual countries.
