"The term 'underdeveloped' has recently come to refer to those countries whicha re technically not as well-equipped as certain others. The term also covers usually area which are, or have been, more or less politically dependent upon foreign powers. It describes nations which are not economically independent. Almost all of them, however are 'have' nations in the sense taht they are rich in natural resources. Almost all are 'old' nations in the sense that they have cultures the conscious history of which may be thousands of years old. These nations are also characterized by a high percentage of illiteracy, a large low-income group, a very small middle class, adn a very small upper class. Their outstanding characteristic is taht they are all in a sense of transition. Transition itself is the product of conflict between their own culture and the impact of Western civilization."
