The following was posted on the urpe-announcements list.
Do any of you, including Samir (who is a listmember), have
a good answer for the inquiry below?

In solidarity, Jerry

Subject: [URPE] Samir Amin and Development of Underdevelopment

 I rely heavily on Samir Amin and the development of underdevelopment in
 my undergraduate economic development course to provide one of the
 alternatives to orthodox develpment theory. However, I have never been
 able to find what I thought was a really good reading to assign my
 undergrad students so they end up having to rely primarily on my
 in-class discussions of disarticulation, extraversion, marginalization
 and hypertrophy of the tertiary sector--what I teach as the four
 processes that result in the degeneration that takes place in the
 periphery known as the development of underdevelopment.

My query:  Does anyone on the URPE list have some appropriate readings
 they could suggest? I have been telling them to read ACCUMULATION ON A
 WORLD SCALE with less than sparkling results. Help would be appreciated.
