Chaney Syllabus
This course examines the relationship between politics and socio-economic
change in Latin America. In the mid-1970's, we in the "developed" world
are far less sure about how the development process works than in the eu-
phoric early 1960's which saw the launching of the Alliance for Progress
and the UN Development Decade. At the same time, not necessarily under-
standing the process any better, Third World nations are determined to
take an ever-more active role in deciding how their own development shall
proceed. Still, if we are short on answers, the questions persist. They
are questions to which all Latin American governments, political parties,
movements and groups MUST address themselves if they wish to survive --
no matter where the particular leaders stand on the political spectrum
nor how authoritarian the regime.
What constitutes development? Can there be growth without development
Why have attempts to build strong industrial sectors failed.in most Latin
American countries? How has the neect of agriculture in most early de-
velopment plans affected overall development? Is underdevelopment caused
as most analysts until now have asserted by deficiencies within tradi-
tional societies suddenly faced with the need for rapid modernization, or
is the cause of underdevelopment primarily external -- the result of the
neo-colonial status of the Third World? How have population pressures
and food shortages complicated the already difficult development picture?
What are the prospects for development to the year 2000? -

Introductions Dimensions of Development in Latin America.
What is the general situation in Intin America today as we
reach the half-way mark in the second United Nations Develop-
ment Decade? A general discussion of the social, economic
and political situation in the Caribbean and South America.
R inkng the Ga of .Develogment, What kind of future can
we envision for Latin America (and, indeed, for most Third
and Fourth world countries) on a planet of rapidly-diminish-
ing resources and burgeoning populations? It it takes 84
years for per capital income of $200 to double a at 5 per-
cent rate ofgrowth, has the "revolution of rising expectations"
been only a cruel hoax?
