[This book] is perhaps the most thorough examination of exactly how those internal class and productive forces contributed to Perus under-development.--ChoiceOriginally published in 1991.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
