AUTHOR

SUMMARY

Daniel Headrick examines why the massive transfer of Western technology to European colonies did not spark an industrial revolution in those countries. Rather than spurring economic progress, he argues, the transfer of stock technology between 1850 and 1940 caused the traditional self-sufficient economies of the colonial regions to be stuck in a state of underdevelopment, a legacy which burdens these countries to this day.Headrick, Daniel R. is the author of 'Tentacles of Progress Technology Transfer in the Age of Imperialism, 1850-1940', published 1988 under ISBN 9780195051162 and ISBN 0195051165.
