Title:Modernization theory - and the non-western world PDF Logo
Authors:Zapf, Wolfgang
Issue Date:2004
Series/Report no.:WZB Discussion Paper P 2004-003
Abstract:In this paper I want to deal with three topics: first, with the development and the ups and downs of modernization theory and its treatment of the non-Western world (I); secondly, with some basic social structure distributions and trends of human development for selected societies, including Islamic countries (II); thirdly, with modernization and modernity in the non-Western world, especially in the Arab world (III). This third part is based only on my reading of some works by area specialists and specialists on Islam; therefore, it barely represents more than the average layperson's current level of information today in Western Europe.
