Underdevelopment -- Canada and the Third World: A Guide to Resources for Study and Action.
Ontario Inst. for Studies in Education, Toronto. Dept. of History and Philosophy of Education.
This directory is based on the Third World Resource Library's concern to communicate an understanding of under-development and a sense of urgency concerning the disturbing questions involved with the Third World. The goal of this Library is to present a resource guide which conveys some sense of the passion of those who experience the violence which is symptomatic of underdevelopment. This aim is developed through a selection of stories, articles, and analytical pieces rather than through editorializing. The directory is divided into two parts: the first consists of an annotated bibliography of the contents with additional sources of the Third World Resource Library; the second contains additional references to organizations, films, simulation games, and reading materials of a more general interest. Part One contains eight sections: Bangladesh; Brazil; Canada; Cuba; Rhodesia; Southern Africa; Technology and Underdevelopment; and Viet Nam. All these sections are mutually supportive and closely interconnected by themes such as racism, imperialism, neo-colonialism, technology, schooling, and underdevelopment. Many of the standard sources or more readily available materials are not represented, nor are the more substantial theoretical and analytical works included. (Author/KSM)
