Professor Wilma Dunaway wrote this manuscript for her class as teaching material in the late ’80s when no such material existed. However, due to the changing priorities in the research, the manuscript did not get to be published as a book.
We consider this book to be essential for everyone who is trying to understand the basic fundamentals of different theories of development; their origin and history, and how different schools of thought relate to each other.
We reproduce the table of contents with links to individual chapters.
