A defence of the main tenets of dependency theory. That colonialism is the root of underdevelopment that has continued through mechanisms of transfer of wealth, in Marxist terms, of surplus value, from the Global South to the Global North. That, as Marini argued, the working class in Latin America is super-exploited. Britain is 'over-developed', London is the international centre of big mining, so there is this new geometry of imperialism emerging.
