AUTHOR

Ted C. Lewellen

SUMMARY

This book draws upon data and theories from economics, political science, anthropology, demography, and environmental studies to provide a broad interdisciplinary overview of the Third World. A brief history shows how the expansion of Europe in the 15th century created dependencies in Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The Third World is shown to be not a "natural" or innate phenomenon, but a consequence of its relationship to the First World that involved economic dependency, rapid population growth, inflated and internationally supplied militaries, and governments trying to provide attractive investment climates for huge multinational corporations. Human rights violations, environmental degradation, the demographic transition, traditional agriculture, world markets, and export policies are examined in a balanced theoretical approach which is aimed at a synthesis of modernization and dependency approaches.Ted C. Lewellen is the author of 'Dependency and Development: An Introduction to the Third World', published 1995 under ISBN 9780897894005 and ISBN 0897894006.
