              Originally published in 1993, this book contains 3 studies on Africa: Algeria, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. The studies underline the difficulties which Africa has faced in initiating its technological transformation. During the post WW2 period liberation from colonialism came relative...ly late and therefore many African countries did not have the possibility of participating in the rapid growth of global output and trade. Debt, drought and famine have put additional burdens on the economic conditions of the continet. Adverse conditions and poor infrastructure have made the continent much more vulnerable to both external and internal disturbances and as a result many countries have not had the opportunity to make a real beginning towards their transformation.

              Originally published in 1993, this book contains 4 studies on Asia: Bangladesh, India, South Korea and Sri Lanka. The studies reflect 4 different patterns of technological transformation. India, with its large populaiton has made considerable progress but its overall development ...has been slow until recently. At the other extreme, South Korea which had a very low per capita income in the 1950s registered a quantum leap in technological transformation within a short span of 30 years. The heritage of Bangladesh's past has constrained its progress in overcoming structural weaknesses but in comparison, Sri Lanka displays a very different pattern. The sources used draw upon research in development economics, economic history, technology and studies in general and country studies in particular.
