Description
Abstract: <p>While the first "oil shock" of 1973/74 has been extensively researched by historians, the crisis' impact on oil-importing countries of the "Third World" has received relatively little attention. The article deals with this lacuna by considering the exemplary case of Zambia. It asks how this central African country perceived the oil crisis and dealt with its effects and how it was influenced by it in the medium term. Comparing the country with both Western industrial states and other "developing countries," the essay argues that Zambia, having just experienced a decade of growth and profiting from record high copper revenues, only belatedly realized the dangers of the situation, but was particularly hard hit in the end.</p>
