Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a groundbreaking book. Goldberg's theoretically informed argument persuasively challenges the conventional wisdom on comparative advantage by focusing on the important role of politics. The nuanced case study of Egypt systematically demonstrates how a combination of political coalitions, regulations, and international arrangements configured at one time can have major, long lasting, and adverse consequences for labor markets, human capital and development. Trade, Reputation, and Child Labor in Twentieth-Century Egypt should transform the study of development."-- Margaret Levi, Jere L. Bacharach Professor of International Studies, University of Washington

"Ellis Goldberg's Trade, Reputation, and Child Labor in Twentieth-Century Egypt is engaging, erudite and provocative. It is a stunning new book that lays out the research agenda in Egyptian economic history for the next generation."--Robert Vitalis, University of Pennsylvania

"A provocative account which has forced me to think again about some of the central arguments concerning Egypt's twentieth-century economic development."
--Roger Owen, Professor of Middle East History, Harvard University
