    Hi Sue This for question 10
    Modernization Theory
    Why are some people and countries poor, and how can they achieve development similar
    to that experienced in the Western world? Modernization theory is informed by both
    classical sociology and economics. It stems from Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution,
    which social scientists later reinterpreted as progress toward a better future, with Western
    society at the pinnacle (“developed nations”). If Western society is developed, then
    other societies and cultures are underdeveloped by definition and can be placed in stages
    along the path to development. Rostow (1956, 1960; see Figure 8.5) argues that the most
    important stage of economic development is the “take-off,” when the development process
    accelerates and continued growth becomes inevitable. Note Rostow’s language used
    in the last stage—”high mass consumption”—which is reminiscent of Bodley’s comments
    about “cultures of consumption.”

    OK. You agree with your text. It's probably correct.

    It does fit my experience with Vietnam between 1996 and the present.

    It adopted Western ways, despite having a Communist economy. When I was there last in 2007, it was much more developed than before.
