This chapter explains that to be international for Titmuss, meant being as concerned with the developing world as with the developed rich north. It notes that Titmuss is a friend and admirer of Julius Nyerere, the independence leader of Tanzania whose work he mentions in this piece. It urges developing counties to balance economic development with social development long before the idea ever entered the heads of those in the World Bank or other international agencies. It notes that Titmuss launched an MSc at the LSE in Social Planning in Developing Countries to train those from the third world in social planning.
