The restructuring 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. The book first focuses on the international economy through examining in detail two relatively successful Third World industrializers--Brazil and South Korea--and then shifts its emphasis to specific aspects of industrialization such as technology, gender relations, culture and the environment.
