Dependence and Underdevelopment contains for the most part articles by the editors, with only an occasional collaborator. Since the excellent and extremely important work of André Gunder Frank has been made available by Monthly Review Press, this publication is a bit redundant and certainly an anticlimax. It does contain, however, an important addition to Frank’s work, an essay entitled “Economic Dependency, Class Structure, and Underdevelopment Policy,” which clears up some essential points. Dale Johnson is responsible for a lucid presentation of the theory of dependency, and a section of his work on the attitudes of the Chilean bourgeoisie is reproduced. This latter is an important corroboration of the hypothesis of a passive, politically bankrupt “middle class.” James Cockcroft’s valuable insights into Mexico reiterate the common theme that “feudalism” and “bourgeois democratic revolution” are inaccurate and inadequate categories for the Third World experience. This requires, of course, a detailed methodological critique of the social scientists that produced them. Frank’s “Underdevelopment of Sociology” and Cockcroft-Ocampo’s “The Concept of Political Development” are very successful here. But the most important result is the amalgam of history, political science, sociology, and economics which winds together to form an alternative paradigm for the interpretation of the Latin American totality.
