Botany, Chemistry, and Tropical Development.
Headrick, Daniel R.
Journal of World History, v7 n1 p1-20 Spr 1996
Examines the role played by botany and chemistry in the development, exploitation, and later deterioration of tropical economies. Although near equals in 19th-century international trade, the development of synthetics by European scientists in the early 20th century crippled the tropical economies. Research, innovation, and investment protected Malaysia. (MJP)
