    Rostow's model was developed in the 1960s at the height of the Cold War. It is inductive and he based his model on his studies of 15 countries (mostly European). It shows a linear form of development, starting from the traditional society right up to the fifth and final stage of high mass consumption which is what most developed countries are in at the moment.

    It assumes that all countries follow the same pattern of development as European countries - i.e. industrial revolution. This is occurring in some LEDCs but there is also, especially in Africa, urbanisation without industrialisation. There are also no spatial considerations of the model and doesnt take into account regional disparities.

    This is off the top of my head...need to do some more revision for economic geography. by the way, this isnt in the edexcel unit 5 syllabus.... :confused:
