Summary
"Based on through statistical analysis A Century of Foreign Investment in the Third World presents comprehensive case studies of policy in 'metropolitan' countries and of the experiences of 'host' countries throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America. The findings reveal that foreign direct investment in - and therefore control over - third world countries was relatively higher at the beginning of the century than at its end." "The book's main innovation is its broad data set which uses a common frame of reference to make comparisons across historical, geographical and political boundaries. With its wide geographical and historical focus, this book makes an important contribution to current debates on dependency theory."--Jacket
