Reviews

"Inozemtsev provides an intriguing look at the prospects for development in the industrializing countries... Some of Inozemtsev's ideas will be controversial, to say the least, but he succeeds in raising interesting questions concerning why development is uneven and, in some cases, apparently unsustainable. Recommended."

"--Choice"

"Inozemtsev's pessimistic conclusion is that rapid industrial progress is not achievable in the information society of the twenty-first century. He believes it will be impossible for non-Western nations to "catch up" with the West because of their inability to generate or control information and knowledge. In "Catching Up," he provides a rational explanation of why the "catching up" development doctrine... which, in various forms, has become on of the outgoing century's most popular social theories... no longer makes scientific and practical sense as we are approaching a new landmark in human history and ought, therefore, to be abandoned by Russia and the world at large. It is a provocative and thoughtful reexamination of theories of accelerated development... that traces the evolution of thinking about how countries lagging behind can most swiftly move forward, and assess their prospects for success in this effort."
