An Introduction to the Analysis of Complex Change

In this invaluable introduction to the major post-Second World War
theories of Third World development, Peter Preston takes as his
focus the strategies used to analyze change in the Third World and
examines the ways in which different conceptions of the nature of
change have led to different lines of policy advice. In doing so,
the author demonstrates how the various contemporary approaches to
development draw upon strategies of enquiry which are lodged deep
within the intellectual traditions of the modern world. The
author's approach is based on the premise that the reader can only
fully grasp the live issues and debates surrounding development
through an understanding of the linkages with the broader
frameworks of social theory.

The volume is organized into four major sections:






  • An introduction to the nature of social scientific
    analysis;


  • A review of the work of the major social scientific figures of
    the nineteenth century and their impacts in the twentieth;


  • A comprehensive discussion of the post-Second World War
    theories of Third World development;


  • A prospective study of the current debates within the field of
    development theory about global structures and agent
    responses.







Development Theory is designed to appeal to students across
a wide range of disciplines, who are taking courses dealing with
aspects of development.
