Overview

Industrialization and Globalization: Theory and Evidence from Developing Countries by John Weiss

In a refreshingly accessible style John Weiss presents a survey of industrialization in developing countries since 1945, as well as a study of the predominant theories of industrial growth in the Third World. This authoritative text analyzes:
* the possibility of different paths to industrialization
* the dominant neoclassical view and the challenges to this orthodoxy
* the importance of small scale industry
* the priority of technological change to industrialization.
At a time when globalization is becoming an increasingly controversial phenomenon, this book offers a powerful argument that despite potential difficulties with market access, integration with the world market offers developing countries the opportunity for future growth via industrialization.
