Industrialization and Development
Tom Hewitt, Hazel Johnson, David Wield
Oxford University Press, 1992 - Brazil - 338 pages
The restruturing of industrial production, the international division of labor, and continual technological change place developing countries in a global process of industrialization. This book clarifies the positive and negative aspects of this process and examines two different theoretical approaches used to achieve industrialization. The book first focuses on the international economy through examining in detail two relatively successful Third World industrializers--Brazil and South Korea, and than shifts its emphasis to the specific aspects of industrialization such as technology, gender relations, culture and the environment.
