This new edition of Development and Underdevelopment retains the strongest contributions of the previous three editions, but includes 12 new chapters that reflect the many seminal contributions made to the field in recent years. There are also two new sections: one addressing the historical origins of the gap between rich and poor countries, and one focusing on how globalization has affected the gap between countries and between the rich and poor within countries. The editors short introduction to each selection, highlighting its significance, remains a key feature of the book.
