    Abstract

    A common characteristic of studies of development emanating from advanced capitalist countries is the use of descriptive rather than structural categorisations. A celebrated example from the discipline of economics is Rostow's schema whereby individual countries are placed in one of five supposedly sequential "stages of economic growth" depending on the presence or absence of certain characteristics. According to this formulation, there is no basic distinction between "developed" and "underdeveloped" countries. Instead, there exists a "continuum" of development ;anging from "least" to "most" developed.
