Examines three decades of development theory, discusses the determinants of the course of its evolution and decline, and exemplifies it from the viewpoint of a participant in the debate. Leys suggests that Africa has some lessons to teach about the meaning of uncontrolled capitalist development.

The author suggests that the African experience has some lessons to teach about the real meaning of uncontrolled capitalist development on a global scale.
