About the Author

Michael P. Todaro was Professor of Economics at New York University for eighteen years and Senior Associate at the Population Council for thirty years. He lived and taught in Africa for six years. He appears in Who's Who in Economics and Economists of the Twentieth Century. He is also the author of eight books and more than fifty professional articles. In a special February 2011 centenary edition, the American Economic Review selected Todaro's article "Migration, Unemployment and Development: A 2-Sector Analysis" (with J. Harriss) as one of the twenty most important articles published by that journal during the first hundred years of its existence. Stephen C. Smith is Professor of Economics and International Affairs at George Washington University. He received his PhD in economics from Cornell University. Smith is author of Ending Global Poverty: A Guide to What Works, co-editor of NGOs and the Millennium Development Goals: Citizen Action to Reduce Poverty, and author or coauthor of some three dozen journal articles

Format: Hardcover
The 10th Edition of Todaro/Smith was excellent, and was supported by good PowerPoints and Instructor's Manual for professors who adopted it. Then the 11th Edition was revised, updated, rearranged, etc., but inadequate attention was paid to bringing the PowerPoints and Instructor's Manual up to date to comply with the new edition. If you are a professor considering this book for adoption, by all means use it if you don't need the ancillaries to teach your class. It is a great book and gives adequate coverage to any area you'd like to cover. If your teaching style depends on having ancillaries that complement the textbook, I'd give it a second thought. My complaints to the publisher have been responded to with apologies and a vague promise to fix it for the next edition, but this has been, and continues to be, a huge headache.

It's a very written book and is assigned by our professor for development economics. The book condition is almost perfect. Hardly any signs that indicate it's used. Good price, great book!

A bit too technical for beginners but generally friendly to readers. I'm relatively a beginner but it is good enough.

As economics major, this book is relevant in someway to just about every one of my classes. Economic Development is the nitty, gritty field work of the subject, and this book helps bring that alive for the reader. It is one of the few textbooks I wish I had bought rather than rented.

I bought this textbook because it was a requirement for my economics course. It is loaded with statistics and graphs, mostly coming from the World Bank, comparing relative wealth of countries. Overall, the text is fairly easy to understand, but the chapters are too long in my opinion. Chapter 3 for instance, starts on page 109!
