Example text

We are forced to ask why agriculturalists would be prepared to give up some of their produce in order to support directly a non-producing ruling elite. Clearly, for this first occurrence of differential power and occupational specialisation, further substantial catalysts were required. The move away from an entirely ecological-hydrological explanation of the first cities owes much to Adams (1966). Against all conventional wisdoms, Adams argued that social factors were paramount in the creation of the first cities.

Hence, the Third World city is essentially a set of perceived opportunities, so that 'perhaps they do no more than promise the hope for work and settlement; but to obtain even crumbs one must be near the table' (Jones and Eyles, 1977: 210). Some occasionally observe that the overt poverty, crowding, unemployment and sporadic squalor of Third World cities should act as deterrents to migrants but, of course, this argument ignores the massive unemployment and poverty which are to be found in the rural areas of so many developing nations (Gilbert and Gugler, 1992; Potter, 1985, 1992b).

The dualism exists between a traditional, indigenous, underdeveloped sector on the one hand, and a modern, developed and westernised one on the other. Seminal works include those of Meier and Baldwin (1957), Prebish (1950), Perloff and Wingo (1961), Schultz (1953), Perroux (1950, 1955), Myrdal (1957) and Hirschman (1958). O. Hirschman forms a convenient springboard for discussion of the approach. Hirschman (1958), in his volume The Strategy of Economic Development, advanced a notably optimistic view in presenting the neo-classical position (see Hansen, 1981).
