The author divided his work into a theoretical part and a part with empirical information about Pakistan. The theoretical part comprises a framework for analysis of the economic development of an agricultural society. The second part describes the basic features of the Pakistan economy and the causes of backwardness in agriculture. Governmental efforts to stimulate economic development and the possibilities of a self-sustained growth were also considered. The economic structure of Pakistan illustrated the dualism typical of underdeveloped communities. To avoid stagnation, growth must be induced. The Pakistan government played an important role in the development of agriculture, by the planning and execution of two five-year plans. The results were mainly expressed as improvement in the agricultural infrastructure and the reorganization of important sectors of agriculture. Improvement was also achieved in those factors essential for selfsustained growth. Finally a new development plan of the government was reviewed. The author doubted whether its objectives could be reached within the time fixed.
