Climbing food, fertiliser and mineral prices as well as the Arab oil embargo in the seventies had severe economic consequences in developing countries. Originally published in 1976, this study explores the effects of these developments in the fourth world and how they can adjust to an international economy with a particular focus on resource availability in terms of energy and agriculture. This title will be of interest to students of Environmental Studies.
