Does a socialist Third World country tackle technological development and mechanization in different ways from a capitalist country? In this meticulous field study of sugar cane harvesting in two leading producer countries - Cuba and Jamaica - Dr. Edquist finds that the causes and consequences of technical change differ significantly. He advances original ideas as to the relationship between technology and socio-economic conditions.
