Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lucid, deeply informed, and enlivened with striking illustrations ... [Chang's] incisive analysis shows how, and why, prescriptions based on reigning doctrines have caused severe harm, particularly to the most vulnerable and defenseless, and are likely to continue to do so." - Noam Chomsky

"I recommend this book to people who have any interest in these issues - i.e. everyone." - Bob Geldof

"A smart, lively, and provocative book that offers us compelling new ways of looking at globalization." - Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel laureate in economics, 2001

" The resulting polemic about the shortcomings of neoliberal economic theory's belief in unlimited free-market competition and its effect on the developing world is provocative and may hold the key to similar miracles for some of the world's most troubled economies." - Publishers Weekly, starred review

About the Author

Ha-Joon Chang is Assistant Director of Development Studies in the Faculty of Economics and Politics, University of Cambridge.
