Get this from a library. Underdevelopment, social relations, and the state in Africa. [Beverly Carolease Grier]. A critical analysis of underdevelopment in Africa. By Stephen Ekokobe Awung. Abstract. This paper explores the factors responsible for the underdevelopment of most African states with an attempt to provide some possible recommendations to overcoming the socio-economic and political problems faced by the continent in a growing inter connected (globalised) world.

“The book is clearly inspired by the political economy and historical materialism perspective that prevailed in African studies in the late s and early s, claiming that the historical trajectories of global capitalist expansion have led to the development of underdevelopment in Africa and a comprador role of the African political elite with international social relations.

ADVERTISEMENTS: Theories of Underdevelopment: Baran’s View on Underdevelopment. By the decade of seventies of the 20th century, the theory of the stages of economic growth became redundant and the structural internationalist theory became prominent. The structuralist approach looks at development in terms of the power relationship between different nations and between different.

This widespread poverty serves as a chief cause of underdevelopment in Africa. Poverty has obvious economic, social and developmental implications that further compound the problems of underdevelopment in Africa.

Walter Rodney's scholarly book makes compelling arguments for the relative underdevelopment of Africa being significantly due in part to the involvement of Europeans in African affairs starting with the Atlantic slave trade - which commenced in the 15th century and lasted into the late/5().

No doubt that Africa is one of, if not, the most blessed by nature in the comity of continents. The goodness of nature to African is mainly manifested in her rich natural resources which includes the best climatic condition.
