The 10 articles assembled in this volume examine old problems and new opportunities in development that are associated with trade, communication, population distribution and migration, culture and institutions. They explore possibilities for and obstacles to technological and institutional transfers between developed and developing societies at a time when capitalism and democracy appear triumphant.
Points of convergence, parallel processes and equivalences in social problems and potential solutions across levels of development are noted. They point out that the hierarchy of the world economic system and indigenous cultures militate against the homogenization of the globe along Western lines.
