"Towards a Socio-Liberal Theory of World Development is a systematic,
quantitative study on the determinants of world development from the 1960s
onwards, using advanced statistical techniques and data from up to 171
countries and territories." "The study confirms the empirical validity of
socio-liberal strategies of development, already inherent in the writings of
development theorists and the leading thinkers of social democracy in the
1920s and 1930s in Europe, theories that stress the necessity of
socio-economic reform in a framework of political democracy and a critique
of the mere substitution of private capitalism by state capitalism." "Today
it is the combination of land and social reform, and capitalist development,
which explains the ascent of some countries, most notably in East and
Southeast Asia, while other regions of the world economy, like the former
communist world in Eastern Europe, are affected by a growing
semi-peripheralization." "The authors analyze these world-wide perspectives
in the framework of long cycles of capitalist development, and also debate
the prospects for Eastern Europe and the former USSR and the prospects for
reform in the industrialized West in a quantitative structure."--BOOK
