This book provides a comprehensive and systematic analysis of the Latin American school of development. Four major strands of the work of Latin American theorists are outlined: structuralism, internal colonialism, marginality, and dependency. This synthesis of Latin American development studies highlights the developed world's over-reliance on, and distorted knowledge of, dependency theory in its approach to development issues and analyzes the Third World's challenge to neoclassical and modernization theories.
