Debt and Imperialism/The Debt Squads (2 bks)
In the past decade the concept of imperialism has been conspicuously absent in any serious analysis of the problems of the underdeveloped lands. However, in the third world itself, the term retained its vigour, as the people of the ‘countryside of the world’ try to make sense of their deteriorating social, economic and political situation. In the metropoles, the triumph of the New Right posed a major threat to radical scholarship in general, and third world studies in particular.
