Inhaltsangabe: This is a comprehensive guide to the resources, in agricultural, mineral and population terms, of the countries of the Third World. This book analyzes the contribution which the possession of resources makes to economic development. It also examines the factors which make for wealth and poverty, and the relationship between the advanced economics of the North and the developing economies of the South. The second part of the book consists of separate analyses of the 144 countries of the Third World. These have been divided into five groups: the three major countries, Brazil, China and India, each considered to have the potential to develop into a major world economy; the 14 "crossover" states - countries which could move from developing to developed states in the near future; the 12 oil states; the 80 low-and middle income countries; and the 35 mini-states.
Rezension: "Grouped by economic activity, each survey is succinct but extensive, dealing with the activities of multinationals in that country as well as government policy on development. Most helpful are the sections describing the importance of the mineral base as well as other sectors of the economy. Recommended for small academic libraries lacking the sources from which the statistics are derived."-"Choice
