MALDEVELOPMENT SAMIR AMIN PDF

In this updated edition of his book Samir Amin explains with great clarity the complex changes of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, including the transformations in Eastern Europe and in the world economy, the growth of capitalism in China and, despite the West riding on the crest of new technologies, its materialist goals being increasingly questioned by new social movements including the Greens. In this context, Amin examines the failure of development from a political stand-point. He addresses problems specific to the Third World, with particular emphasis on the crisis of the African continent. The capitalist state in the peripheries is unable to provide a basis for further development; it can only exacerbate inequalities. This means, says Amin, that the world needs to be remade on the basis of an alternative social system that is national, popular and based on South-South cooperation and that delinks the South from the North. This could lead to a genuinely polycentric world that provides Asia, Africa and Latin America with real scope for development.

Maldevelopment : Anatomy of a Global Failure

This is the old United Nations University website. Maldevelopment - Anatomy of a global failure. The United Nations University's UNU Project on the Third World and World Development aims to study contemporary global developments from the perspective of the South: ongoing trends and structural changes in the world-system are analysed in terms of their consequences for the different regions of the third world and their implications for development strategies and policy options that the developing countries can pursue, singly and collectively through South-South co-operation. Through an interdisciplinary and global comparative framework, the Project integrates the UNU's previous research work on the regional perspectives of Africa, Asia, and Latin America - research which has been undertaken over the last decade and has involved, worldwide, hundreds of researchers organized into regional networks. The comparative research into the different regions' experiences of the s provides a basis for comprehending their expectations for the s and for formulating development strategies that would be fully cognizant of the changes that hew occurred at all levels of the global system. Those changes have been analyzed in this Project through five main themes: the process of transnationalization, the crisis of states, the emergence of social movements, the cultural dimension of contemporary developments, and conflicts and the possibilities of co-operation in the third world.
