At the Crossroads of Development

Transnational Challenges to Developed and Developing Societies

Series:

Edited by Behar and Cuzán

The 10 articles assembled in this volume examine old problems and new opportunities in development that are associated with trade, communication, population distribution and migration, culture and institutions. They explore possibilities for and obstacles to technological and institutional transfers between developed and developing societies at a time when capitalism and democracy appear triumphant.
Points of convergence, parallel processes and equivalences in social problems and potential solutions across levels of development are noted. They point out that the hierarchy of the world economic system and indigenous cultures militate against the homogenization of the globe along Western lines.

Broadly speaking, we can view women and development as the empowerment of women in a Third World context. Accordingly, the question is whether women in the Middle East and North Africa benefit from development. If so, in what ways do they benefit? The essays in this volume survey a number of countries in the region to address these questions. The countries include Afghanistan, Palestine/Israel, Iran, Algeria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and Egypt. There is also an introduction to the volume and a general essay on women and development. The authors themselves are an international group of social scientists specializing in the region.

A new phenomenon in the past several decades has been the steady growth of the role of the state in both political and economic life throughout the developing world. This is largely the result of political leaders becoming increasingly involved in economic affairs and thereby using the state apparatus as an instrument to achieve politically- defined, economic objectives. Stronge developmentalist states, hence, have come to be seen as playing a central role in promoting economic growth and socio-cultural change. This collection of essays, however, raises a series of caveats about the idea that strong states promote development by exploring several case studies, including Algeria, Malaysia, South Korea, Venezuela and Taiwan.
