Title: El Salvador. Nation of the Modern World
Description: London England, Ernest Benn, 1973. First Edition, Binding: Card Cover, Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" Tall Octavo 0510395236 Hardback Hardback. First Edition. El Salvador. Previous owners name to inside cover. This is the first serious all-round study in any language of El Salvador, the smallest yet most densely popuklated, state on the American continent, which epitomizes in an acute form many problems besetting Latin American countries in general, and other under-developed countries too. The type of development pursued in El Salvador, in a liberal and modernizing guise, leaves the bulk of the population as badly off as before. Dr. White gives special attention to El Salvador's relations with her Central American neighbours and with the United States. He also examines the social system, closely linked with the economy. Coffee is the main cash crop, but El Salvador is prevented by quota agreements from exporting anything like her full potential. Industry has grown without any corresponding growth in the number of jobs available thus intensifying heavy unemployment. Meanwhile the oligarchy exploits the advantages its wealth provides, and campaigns against exonomic change. With 3 maps and 16 pages of illustrations. Illustrated. 288 pp.
