Developmentalism, Dependency, and the State: Industrial Development and Economic Change in Namibia since 1900
Why does Namibia’s economy look the way it does today? Was the reliance on raw materials for exports and on the service sector for employment an inevitability? And for what reasons has the manufacturing sector seen its growth held back? With these questions in mind, Santiago based Christopher Hope’s book offers an extensive analysis of industrial development and economic change in Namibia since 1900, exploring their causes, trajectory, vicissitudes, context, and politics.
